This is the same guy who yelled "Don't look at me!" at a hitter because he was pissy that he made a bad pitch. The same guy who yelled at the entire Texas Rangers' bench because he didn't like the way they were playing the game. The same guy who yelled "You're not that (expletive) good!" at Alex Guerrero multiple times simply for being frustrated at popping up a pitch. The same guy who throws beanballs every time he feels the slightest whiff of disrespect.

He's a pretentious entitled diva. This is simply another small exhibit among many.


Don't forget how he plunked Braun...

Right before Schoop hit that salami off him. Recently re-watched that, and ENJOYED watching Schoop hit that drive.

Anything we can do to improve our team now so we don’t need a pitcher like this idiot near or at deadline I’m for.

This guy is pretty good. We should trade for him.

Giving up half of our farm for a declining pitcher. No thanks. Plus he would destroy our world record breaking team chemistry.

I doubt anyone would give up much for him and I also doubt he would be the one to destroy the chemistry.

I agree with this statement. The big question would be whether he would be any better than the options the team already has available? Perhaps playing for a contender would energize him like it seemingly did for Verlander, but it could also be argued that Bumgarner has also fallen off more and for a longer sustained period than Verlander did in his last year as a Tiger.

If he’s even pitching well enough for the brewers to want to trade for him,reports I’ve heard one of Burnes,woodruff or Peralta among other
Lessor pieces. Being facetious when I say half the farm > No thanks.

I wouldn't trade Corey Ray straight up for him at this point. Stay far, far away.

The Giants really don't seem to have much of a plan right now. They should be rebuilding but have held on to all their good players and signed a bunch of crappy veterans. I'd guess they're of the mindset right now that they would have to be blown away by an offer to trade Bumhole.

I think 2018 was a failed "let's try this one more time" idea. Not a great idea but I think they're done now. They barely did anything this offseason.

I think if they have any sign of struggle this year you'll see a firesale.

Most of their issue is that the only tradeable expensive vets are Posey and MadBum, maybe. The issue with them is that nobody wants to offer much for .5-1 year of a declining MadBum and I'm not sure if Posey is worth 3/$66 anymore that he has left.

Cueto, Longoria, Shark, Melancon will have to just rot away most likely. Belt, Panik, Smith probably can and will be dealt when their value is at its peak if they don't see them in the long-term plans.

I think all this ^^^ may prove true re: the 2019 Giants. That said, I'd also just love it if they get their collective act together and beat out LA to win the division. They have some high-end talent. Of course, they have lots of others who are something appreciably less than high-end talent, too. But it'd be cool -- only if the Brewers aren't the NL team in the WS -- if the Giants gave Bruce Bochy the best retirement present ever, one more WS title.

Nah, the Giants have enough WS titles, I'd rather see a new team in there if it isn't the Brewers.

Well, as I said, at minimum it'd be cool for them to beat out big-money LA for the NL West crown.

Easy to root for a $199M payroll team to get beat out by a scrappy $205M payroll team. [wink]

Yeah, I just don't understand why the Giants winning it all is any better, at all, over the Dodgers...

I hate rooting for the media's darlings in any sport, which usually is tied to the largest markets.

MLB: Yankees, Mets, BoSox, Cubs, Dodgers
NBA: Lakers, Knicks (on the rare-lately chance they're actually good)
NFL: Cowboys

No argument there, not many of those teams I can stand.

The Knicks are hilarious in that they have every possible big market advantage possible and still manage to royally suck year after year. Their owner is a total joke and has zero self-awareness about that fact.

I think those are viable examples. I don't think a guy with the resume that MadBum has and the mentality he approaches the game with makes his private text about them using an opener for him in that same category.

I think if Jimmy Nelson said the same thing we'd be applauding his confidence and "bulldog" type persona. But because it's a guy we got into it with last year, we're putting WAAY too much into it.

And we're also assuming he was serious. My guess is that he was half joking in that he'd walk out of the stadium or wouldn't do it, but 100 pct serious in that he hated the idea.

I like that list, but I'd take the Mets out and put the Cards in. I don't really see the Mets as Media darlings. In fact, they seem to get small market treatment more than anything. All the rumors of them trading Degrom and Syndergaard(a guy who's 25 years old, has the stuff that people hoped Strausburg would have and is coming off a "disappointing" 4.0 WAR season).

Can you imagine if the Cards had a couple guys who still had multiple years under team control talking about trading two talents like that? I actually think they get treated like the little brothers they are in NYC.

Other than that, I am in 100 pct agreement with that list. I might add the Pats as I just hate watching them somehow win year after year.

There are plenty of examples of Bummy being a prick other than last year. He yells at batters for being upset after they strikeout and he stares down guys for whatever reason he sees fit. A perfect fit for the Cardinals if there ever was one.
