Madison Bumgarner


DETROIT – The pitcher win might be an outmoded statistic, as relevant as ‘70s platform heels and ‘80s skinny jeans and wait … are either one of those relevant again? 


DENVER –- Count off the last four National League pitchers of the month and you can’t help but appreciate the intrigue. 


SAN FRANCISCO – It all said so much about Madison Bumgarner.

His fastball was pure backwoods camouflage, jumping like a rabbit, kicking like a buck and swooping like a red-tailed hawk.


CHICAGO – Madison Bumgarner is not the kind of leader who stands in the middle of a clubhouse, delivers movie-script speeches and starts a slow clap.
