Hahaha... Oh, That's Actually His Name

I just want to say that no matter how well he pitches (9-3, 1.79 ERA, 2.06 FIP, 9.82 K/9, 1.51 BB/9, 0.28 HR/9 in A-Ball as a 19 year-old), I will never be able to take Madison Bumgarner seriously as a prospect, or later, as a player. I have no idea why this popped into my head as I read about Pirates trading Xavier Nady and Damaso Marte to the Yankees (which I'll cover tomorrow, probably), but it did. At least since he is in the San Fransisco organization, Bumgarner will have to play second fiddle to at least Tim Lincecum. Also of note: regardless of current evidence, I am not actually 9 years old.
