His performance away from AT&T Park the last 2 years leaves a lot to be desired.

How did it turn out for Grienke?

Howard Lynch LynchMob

This season he'll get to pitch a number of games against the SFG offense (29th in OPS+ last year) ?

Phil Ponebshek Texpope

Am I the only one scared to death of how him going to Arizona may turn out?

Is there any metric any can show that can put a positive light on it?

In the Jan. 6 issue of Baseball America. Joe Sheehan crowns the Giants the Team of the Decade.

I have no quarrel with that.

Who won the most regular season games in each league in the 2010's?

The Yankees and Dodgers.

How many rings between them?

Zero.

The Giants ranked 13th in wins in the decade. Barely above the middle.

And still I have no quarrel with Sheehan.

In their three post-season runs, the Giants won 36 and lost 17. In one of them they started as the Wild Card.

It wasn't all Madison Bumgarner, it just feels like it.

Sheehan rolls out an amazing factoid about MadBum's 2014 postseason. Beginning with his shutout in the Wild Card game, he pitched nearly a third of the team's innings.

In 2014 it was all MadBum.

Interesting tweet from Ken Rosenthal:

Two notes on Madison Bumgarner: 1) Per sources, he was the #Nationals’ Plan B if they had not re-signed Stephen Strasburg. 2) A California-based team would have needed to offer him $100M to match the net after tax of $85M from the #Dbacks (h/t @SportsTaxMan).

How will his 5.29 road ERA in 2019 play out in 2020 with a new team. 

FB% was higher as well as HR/Fly.

Extremely fortunate BABIP with RISP last year .250......regression hit this year .360.

We have turned the page. All of Mad Bum's comments before yesterday are archived.

Two years of Fangraphs' advanced metrics kick off the comments for all hitters with at least 50 plate appearances and pitchers with at least 20 innings in each of the last two seasons.

The two-year scan is much more interesting than a single season standing alone. Here we are looking at a 30-year-old pitcher who threw his fastball faster and more often.

Why did his ERA go up while his WHIP went down?

HR/FB and LOB% were both higher.

In pitcher after pitcher after after pitcher, we are going to see a higher HR/FB.

To the Diamondbacks for 5/85.
