Lucky us

Madison Bumgarner was 2-8 on June 9th. He's 12-12 now. We all knew the W-L record did not reflect the performance of the young lefty. Last Hallowe'en MadBum threw a game for the ages in the World Series and forever endeared himself to Giants fans. Like his teammate Matt Cain, the national audience has yet to appreciate his greatness. That's fine. Tim Lincecum can handle the spotlight-grabbing duties for the club. We get to watch them slay opponents with regularity, and if the rest of the baseball world can't enjoy it, too bad for them. MadBum is a mere 22 years of age and doesn't get to his fourth and final year of arbitration until 2016. I think we are going to see a lot of our super southpaw.

Lucky us.
