Madison Bumgarner was only 22 years old when the San Francisco Giants extended him early in 2012. Since he’d shown ace potential in 2011 with a 3.21 ERA over 204.2 innings, it was worth a shot.cheap nike nfl jersey
Boy, was it ever.cheap nfl nike jersey
Bumgarner had little trouble carrying his 2011 success over to 2012. And when his extension actually started in 2013, that’s when he evolved from budding ace to mega-ace.
He logged over 200 innings and posted an ERA under 3.00 each year between 2013 and 2014. He was the only pitcher to do that, so there’s an argument that he deserved better than to rank eighth among pitchers in rWAR for those four seasons.nike nfl jerseys cheap china
WAR also can’t encapsulate what Bumgarner did in the 2014 postseason. He turned in a 1.03 ERA over 52.2 innings. It’s arguably the greatest October run ever by a pitcher, and the Giants wouldn’t have won their third World Series in five years without it.china nike nfl jerseys cheap
Although the lefty has run into injury trouble over the last two seasons, he’s continued to pitch like an ace when he has been healthy. If he can keep that up, he should have no trouble collecting appropriate riches after he’s finally free of his contract after 2019.
