Giants notes: Bumgarner dominates AAA's, Heston has the right stuff, Susac goes nine, etc.

Augmented from what ran in the paper... SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Madison Bumgarner drove his very large truck down to minor league camp Friday afternoon and built his pitch count against Oakland’s Triple-A lineup. It wasn’t an especially fair fight. He… Continue Reading →

San Francisco Giants' Madison Bumgarner looks sharp against Oakland A's minor leaguers

Bumgarner strikes out 11 in six innings against the A's Triple-A lineup.

Madison Bumgarner is the manliest man in his new commercial

Get ready to feel very self-conscious about your soft, office-worker hands. Work wear company Carhartt found its perfect pitch man in San Francisco Giants pitcher/real life farmer Madison Bumgarner, who stars in its latest national ad campaign. It’s very outdoorsy. Bumgarner is featured cutting down a tree and casually throwing logs around his North Carolina farm, a standard offseason day in the life of the World Series MVP. “I can’t stand having sissy hands, soft hands,” he explains in the behind-the-scenes video. Easy, MadBum. We already know you’re a million times manlier than...

San Francisco Giants Link Dump, 3/24

If I hadn't been very rich, I might have dumped a really great link. It's Tuesday, so that means it's time to dump some links! Okay, it doesn''t actually mean that, since link dumps aren't on a fixed schedule, but if they were, and Tuesday was link dump day, that's what it would mean. I'm glad to clear that up. World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner still chops down trees in the offseasonYou saw the commercial because everyone saw the commercial, but what about the story...behind the commercial? How did Madison Bumgarner come to be in an ad for an outdoor apparel company that was directed by...

Madison Bumgarner fought a tree and won

Carhartt released this commercial where Bumgarner talks about his offseason routine while chopping down a tree. If you ever had any reservations in who would win in a fight, Madison Bumgarner or an inanimate object at least three times his size, this video might sort it out for you. A workhorse on and off the mound, Madison Bumgarner attacks work like a workout. #CarharttForce #OutworkThemAll https://t.co/CSTHpdD0OW — Carhartt (@Carhartt) March 23, 2015 The full commercial was shot by Game of Thrones Dothraki Jason Momoa, who Bumgarner was seen drinking with last month.

The (preview of the) new Giants commercial season is here!

There's apparently a staring contest between Madison Bumgarner and Buster Posey, among other delights. Your browser does not support iframes. At first, I was like ... And then I was like ... But then everyone was all ... Giants commercials are coming, everyone. I care far too much about this, and I don't even feel bad. Take a trip down memory lane by remembering last year's commercials. Note: Travis Ishikawa wasn't even in last year's for some reason.

Giants' Bumgarner has no regrets over contract

The San Francisco Giants control ace Madison Bumgarner's rights for the next five seasons in what might be the club-friendliest contract in either league.
Giants notes: Bumgarner doesn’t have money on his mind, etc.

Giants notes: Bumgarner doesn’t have money on his mind, etc.

From the paper… It took 33 days and three innings, but Madison Bumgarner, the pitcher who loves to swing the bat, finally received his first plate appearance of the spring on Sunday. He was as eager as a Bengal tiger… Continue Reading →

Is it time to worry about Madison Bumgarner?

Probably not. It is time to project his 2015 season, though. A couple of months after Madison Bumgarner came out of the Kauffman Stadium bullpen, riding an allosaurus that devoured everything in its path, he was in the Scottsdale bullpen, trying to figure out what's wrong. Repeating the mantra "it's only spring" helps, but with every start, the words start bouncing off the walls of your brain. They leave a chalky taste in your mouth. It's only spring. It's only spring. Bleah. Hrrkleeahhck. Seriously, though. It's only spring! It's only spring. It's only spring. Four games....

Waino Was Bueno

Adam Wainwright needed surgery but the Cardinals needed Adam Wainwright, so he threw a baseball about a hundred times as hard and as effectively as he could even though he couldn't open household condiment jars. The setting is October 2014. The Cardinals were down three games to two to the San Francisco Giants. Adam Wainwright was slated to pitch Game 5 but his status was in question due to health concerns. Madison Bumgarner was pitching for the Giants. Wainwright had just surrendered nine runs in nine innings in his previous two starts, so Cardinals fans were not exactly beaming with...

Ishikawa, Bumgarner help Giants beat White Sox

GLENDALE, Ariz. – Will Ferrell got all the attention. The San Francisco Giants liked what they saw from Travis Ishikawa and Madison Bumgarner, too.

Giants notes: A Brave and a Cardinal take Kyle Crick under their wing, Hudson and Lincecum updates, etc.

From the paper… SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Kyle Crick sees role models wherever he looks in the Giants’ spring clubhouse. Few pitching staffs are as seasoned or accomplished as the group that includes Madison Bumgarner, Matt Cain, Jake Peavy, Tim Hudson,… Continue Reading →

Padres 7, Giants 6: Wil Myers Hits First Homer, Shields Shines

This afternoon, the Padres took on the division rival Giants for the first time this spring, and our boys showed up swinging. Wil Myers hit his first bomb of the spring, taking Tim Lincecum's pitch over the tall right field wall in Scottsdale. Joining Myers in the home run club was Rymer Liriano, who went deep on Cody Hall, providing an essential insurance run for the ninth inning. But it wasn't just the long ball that kept the Friars on top today. Cory Spangenberg got the scoring started early, hitting a two RBI single off World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner in the second. Alexi Amarista...
