Sox in on MadBum

Recommended Posts

I don't know why I thought Bumgarner was older than 30.

What's the biggest concern over signing him?  I'm not being an ass, I'm curious.

Innings on his arm. He's been pitching 200 innings per year since he was 20, plus 3 full postseasons with a CG or two. Tons of gopher balls.

A lot of balls that didn't go out in AT&T would go out in Guaranteed Rate.

A lot of miles on his arm.

I think just the number of innings he has pitched. He has around 1100 more innings than Wheeler, for example.

That he's thrown 200+ innings since he was 20 years old.  He got in a serious RTV accident a few years ago that fucked up his shoulder for two years.  Pass.

I'm assuming an NL team is Bumgarner's first choice since the dude loves to hit. Really have a hard time believing if it was close in offers he'd choose an AL team over an NL team.

That said...I'm pretty meh on him anyway.

seeing $100 mill number being thrown around for MadBum is making me nauseous. I hate that we won't fight for the top dogs, fuckin JR..

Tons and tons of fly balls and homers, even while pitching in one of the most homer suppressing parks in the MLB. Presumably that gets a lot worse at GRF.
