Bumgarner Blues

Posted: April 16, 2011 in General

Yes it’s true I have the Madison Bumgarner blues.  One of the young flame throwers I drafted hasn’t panned out so far getting shelled for a season ERA of 9.  He starts this Sunday and let’s hope we can take something positive out of it.  I like to draft an ace or two like Josh Johnson, and then go for young up and coming pitchers with high K/9 ratios like Bumgarner and Daniel Hudson which so far this season hasn’t worked according to plan.  Hudson had 10 k’s yesterday but gave up a lot of runs.  With pending decisions coming up next week and my catcher on the DL I may have no choice but to fire one of them for a backup catcher.  I don’t want to do it and hopefully I can get him back, but it is unlikely.  Pitchers can bounce back look at Cole Hamels first and second starts for proof of this.  So come on Madison Sunday is your day so don’t blow it.
