MADISON BUMGARNER NEWS

Giants offense still struggling for answers

The noise was everywhere Tuesday night. It cascaded down from the right field seats and Hunter Pence encouraged it. It spilled out of the dugouts after close calls, and out of Giants' mouths after many a called strike. The Giants were loud, heated and in the middle of one argument after another. They were also on the losing end of a 6-1 game with the A's, falling for the...

Bumgarner helps Giants top Diamondbacks

Joe Panik's "oh my goodness" moment did not occur when he had his first major-league plate appearance and walked Saturday, nor when he took his position for the first time Sunday, nor even as he stood on base after he singled in the fifth inning for his first big-league hit. It was after the inning, as teammates ran to their positions and one by one patted Panik on...

Fantasy Roundup: Todd Frazier’s HR Potential

Todd Frazier belted his 12th home run of the year (against Madison Bumgarner) and is now on pace for 32 home runs, which would easily be a career high. He probably will not hit 32, but I’m projecting 25-28 because his approach at the plate is the same and he’s making more hard contact (image below). Frazier currently has an 18.0% HR/FB rate, which is the highest of his career...

Madison Bumgarner Wins NL Pitcher of the Month For May

Three years, three aces. When the Giants won the World Series in 2010, the clear ace of the pitching staff that year was Tim Lincecum.

Had Madison Bumgarner really wanted payback for the worst beating of his big-league career, he would have had to roam the country to find all of the 2011 Twins who crushed him for eight runs in one-third of an inning.
