In a bold, brilliant move, Bruce Bochy just announced that Madison Bumgarner will start tonight in place of the injured Tim Lincecum. The good news is that its Lincecum’s back, not his arm. The fun news is that the 20 year old Bumgarner just got out of high school two years ago, and now he’s taking the mound in a pennant-race at AT&T.
For you older readers, let’s hope Bumgarner takes the majors by storm like the 19 year-old Dwight Gooden in 1984.
Thanks to John Shea and Henry Schulman, along with loyal readers Sal and Minerva for the scoop.
And thanks to the Giants for the fun! Go Madison and Go U-RIBE!
