What Is Madison Bumgarner Worth in Upcoming Giants Megadeal?

There's what Madison Bumgarner is making, what he's worth and how much he might make in his next contract. Spoiler alert: These three things are very different. What's certain is the San Francisco Giants have gotten a lot more than they bargained for when they extended Bumgarner in April 2012. The left-hander's contract guaranteed $35 million through 2017, with two club options in 2018 and 2019 worth at least $12 million and at most $16 million depending on his performance in Cy Young voting. In five regular seasons since, this has paid for a 2.96 ERA across 1,072 innings. Bumgarner has further earned his cash by helping deliver World Series titles in 2012 and 2014. He won the latter championship almost single-handedly. By Baseball-Reference.com's version of wins above replacement, Bumgarner has only been the 11th-best pitcher in the league over the last five years. This is somewhere between hogwash and codswallop. He's at worst ...




Madison Bumgarner Contract: Latest News, Rumors on SP’s Negotiations with Giants

Madison Bumgarner has a team-friendly contract that features two team options for 2018 and 2019, but that's not stopping the San Francisco Giants from getting an early start on extension talks with their ace. Continue for updates. Giants Want to Talk Extension Thursday, Oct. 13 Per Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle, Giants general manager Bobby Evans has already spoken to Bumgarner and told his agents the team is ready to discuss an extension when they are. Bumgarner has been one of the best bargains in Major League Baseball since signing his original five-year, $35 million deal in April 2012. That deal bought out Bumgarner's first three years of free agency if the Giants end up exercising both of their options. Per Baseball-Reference.com, next year will be the first time in Bumgarner's career that he makes more than $10 million in a season. Bumgarner is scheduled to make $11.5 million in 2017. For perspective, per Cot's Baseball ...

Another Giant October Win Shows Bumgarner, SF Could Be Challenge for Cubs

NEW YORK — If the Chicago Cubs are the team that wants to spend this month rewriting their history, the San Francisco Giants are the team that can spend October embracing theirs. This is the team that knows no October disappointment, at least since their run of championship baseball began six years ago this month. This is the team that expects every big game to go the way Wednesday night's Wild Card Game went at Citi Field, when Madison Bumgarner pitched a four-hit shutout and Conor Gillaspie hit a ninth-inning home run and the Giants beat the New York Mets, 3-0. The Giants expected this, and no matter how many times anyone says this is finally the Cubs' year, the Giants will expect to go into Wrigley Field and win there, too, starting Friday night in Game 1 of the National League Division Series. "When it comes to playoff baseball," Brandon Belt said Wednesday, ...




Giants, Dodgers Benches Clear After Madison Bumgarner-Yasiel Puig Argument

The San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers are archrivals, and tensions boiled over Monday during the first game of a three-game series. Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner and Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig exchanged words before the teams' benches and bullpens cleared after the end of the seventh inning. MLB shared video of Puig grounding out to Bumgarner and the ensuing scuffle: Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times passed along the interaction between the two: "I just ran," Puig said, per MLB.com's Jack Baer and Chris Haft. "He was looking in my direction. He asked me why I was looking in his direction, and I then asked him why he was looking at me. That's it." "I didn't hear what was going on. He tried to stare me down or something. That's what it looked like to me," Bumgarner said, according to Baer and Haft. This is not the first time Bumgarner and Puig have gotten into ...




Should the Giants Be Worried About Suddenly Mortal Madison Bumgarner?

The second half of the season has not been kind to the San Francisco Giants, to put it mildly. Since the All-Star break, they've gone 11-25 with a minus-29 run differential and watched a 6.5-game lead over the archrival Los Angeles Dodgers evaporate into a three-game deficit. There are problems all over, from slumping hitters to bullpen blowups. But this might be the most concerning development of all for San Francisco: uber-ace Madison Bumgarner suddenly looks mortal. Bumgarner took the loss Tuesday to the Dodgers, surrendering nine hits and five earned runs in five innings in a 9-5 defeat. It's one game, sure. And Bumgarner's overall stats remain exemplary, as we'll delve into shortly. But August, overall, has not been kind to the Giants lefty. In 30 innings this month, Bumgarner has yielded 30 hits and 18 runs—14 of them earned. He mixed in a couple of strong outings Aug. 7 and 13 against the Washington ...

Madison Bumgarner Will Not Participate in 2016 Home Run Derby

Despite a public campaign to become the first pitcher to participate in the Home Run Derby, San Francisco Giants southpaw Madison Bumgarner will not be part of this year's event on July 11.   Connor Grossman of KNBR was among the first to report the news, citing Giants manager Bruce Bochy's comments before his team's showdown Thursday with the Oakland Athletics. “There’s no Home Run Derby with Madison," Bochy said. "That’s been nixed.” Bumgarner told ESPN's Buster Olney on June 5 that he wanted to join the event, but Bochy shut down the idea because of safety concerns for his ace. Bochy said last week he was "open-minded" about the idea, per Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News, but that sentiment now appears to be gone. Bumgarner was part of a contingent of pitchers lobbying to be in the Derby. Chicago Cubs ace Jake Arrieta and the New York Mets' Noah Syndergaard also expressed interest, ...




Why MLB Needs Madison Bumgarner in the 2016 Home Run Derby

Every time Madison Bumgarner hits a home run, the baseball gods smile.  So it stands to reason that if Bumgarner were to participate in the Home Run Derby, there would be grins all over the place. First, the background: Bumgarner, the left-handed ace of the San Francisco Giants, recently put on a display in batting practice at Busch Stadium, as is his wont. And then he said this to ESPN.com's Buster Olney about the Derby: "I want to do it."  There's someone else who's not so keen on the idea. "No, to be serious, I couldn't let him do it," Giants skipper Bruce Bochy told Olney. "We couldn't let him do it." That's understandable. Bumgarner is the Giants' rotation-anchoring stud, the guy who carried them to their third World Series in five seasons in 2014 and now is flashing his dominant October form in June. Why would they let him potentially injure himself in a meaningless fence-clearing exhibition? They probably won't is the answer, ...




Jake Arrieta Comments on Madison Bumgarner Wanting to Be in MLB Home Run Derby

Add Chicago Cubs ace Jake Arrieta to the list of National League pitchers who want to participate in the Home Run Derby.  Arrieta joined San Francisco's Madison Bumgarner as star hurlers hoping to show off their swing, per Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times. "If [Bumgarner]'s in it, I need to be in it," Arrieta said. "He can hit the ball a long way, but I can too." He also mentioned that taking part in the event would be a greater thrill than some of his pitching accomplishments, per ESPNChicago.com's Jesse Rogers: Arrieta displayed his power when he launched this bomb off Arizona's Shelby Miller on April 10, courtesy of MLB.com: The jack came on Arrieta's first plate appearance of the season. For his career, he has three home runs and 13 RBI in 169 plate at-bats. Bumgarner told ESPN's Buster Olney this week that he wants to be in the Derby. However, Giants manager Bruce Bochy would ...
