It’s been clear for a while that the San Francisco Giants have something on their hands with Madison Bumgarner. The promising native of Hickory, N.C. hit for a .470 slugging percentage in limited action two years ago at age 24, and followed on with a .468 mark last season, the highlight of the year probably being a May dinger off Los Angeles Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw.


Today, Bumgarner did it again, going deep in the bottom of the second inning against the three-time Cy Young Award winner. Skipper Bruce Bochy should find a way to get this guy more at-bats.
