You’re probably aware of the exuberant celebratory dance routine in the Diamondbacks’ locker-room, which take place under the guidance of David Peralta and Eduardo Escobar. But if not, here you go.

Is MadBum’s streak the best in Diamondbacks history?

Is MadBum’s streak the best in Diamondbacks history?

Photo by Norm Hall/ That would depend on how you measure it. There’s no denying that Madison Bumgarner’s recent form has been fantastic. All the more so, in fact, because of the contrast in which it stands to his previous performances as a Diamondback. There had been serious doubts as to the worth of the five-year $85 million deal which Madison signed in December 2019. The first season had been a disaster, with a 6.48 ERA, and this year had started off worse still. After four starts, Bumgarner’s ERA was 11.20, and his overall figures with Arizona were among the...

Diamondbacks 11, Marlins 3: It’s Good to Be Home

Photo by Norm Hall/ Another stellar start by Madison Bumgarner, coupled with the offense finding their stash of bats they hadn’t packed for the recent road trip, allowed us to weather another seemingly inevitable bad performance by the bullpen and notch another win in emphatic fashion. First off, a bit of a public service announcement: sorry this recap is going up late. It’s not our fault. The Snakepit, and the Gameday Thread, and SBNation as a whole, crapped out around 9:15pm AZ time, about twenty minutes before the game ended. It was a pity, too, because it had...

Joseph Cress/Iowa City Press-Citizen via Imagn Content Services, LLC What is going through our highest paid pitcher’s mind? Last week, I asked you to take this picture of Madison Bumgarner staring intently into the camera while delivering a pitch and tell me what he was thinking. Lots of good answers, but not many recs were spread around this week. Don’t forget, clicking that button costs you nothing! Despite the general stinginess with recs this week, Hacks was able to hoard several of them to himself and easily walked away with first place in our contest this...

Photo by Creative Touch Imaging Ltd./NurPhoto via Mount .500 successfully submitted. Are higher peaks achievable? Should Madison Bumgarner’s outing in Atlanta be considered a no-hitter? Isaiah: As much as I’d like to, I’m going with no. I simply can’t wrap my mind around seven innings being a no-hitter, even if it was the destined length of the game. Call it what you will. James: I think so, even if they have to come up with a new classification, maybe calling it ano-7 or something. The reality is, he pitched the complete game and allowed no runs on no hits. ...

Photo by Ralph Freso/ All of Torey’s Men Get the Job Done Madison Bumgarner came to the ballpark tonight feeling a little under the weather. (Not Covid) and looked a little shaky to start this one. But he gutted through the early innings and ended his night in dominating fashion. The offense broke out in the 3rd inning to score 4 runs and tacked on 3 more later in the game and the bullpen did a good job closing it out for the second night in a row. Bumgarner got two quick outs on a popup and a strikeout to start the game. But Trevor Story hit a soft line into the...
