Snake Bytes: 8/16 - Mad Bummed

A rough outing for the team’s highest paid player

MLB: Arizona Diamondbacks at San Francisco Giants D. Ross Cameron-USA TODAY Sports

Last Night’s Game

Diamondbacks 1, Giants 6: Sad Bum lost in LOB City

“A poor start from Madison Bumgarner plus missed opportunities early sunk the Diamondbacks in the first of a four-game series against the San Francisco Giants. Bumgarner allowed six runs in his final three innings on the mound and the D-backs left eight runners on base, twice leaving the bases loaded. The loss is the D-backs’ eighteenth loss in their last twenty games at Oracle Park.”

Rangers fire manager Chris Woodward

After spending massively this winter, the Rangers are 11 games under .500 despite only having a -1 run differential on the season. A 6-24 record in one-run games seems to be the main culprit for Woodward’s ouster although I never thought he was that competent.
