Madison Bumgarner is Awesome

It occurred to me today that Madison Bumgarner is kind of awesome with the pitching and whatnot. And perhaps we should look that this, because it's really been criminally neglected. The last time we had done so, at least that I can find, was July 7th, in a small paragraph. And last night, Mr. Bumgarner threw seven shutout innings, striking out nine and walking none, and the postgame thread managed to mention only this:

Madison Bumgarner with two hits in the same inning

which was also pretty awesome, but still. Let's consider:

3.06 ERA, 3.77 FIP, 3.16 K/BB, 6.71 K/9, 2.12 BB/9, 44.7% GB%, 1.8 WAR, 90.9 average FB velocity (he's fine), as a 21 freakin' year old rookie. His half of this Rotographs article is also quite nice. He's ours, and he's ours for a while, so let's not lose him in the rest of that awesome pitching staff, or let his batterymate Jesus's stellar rookie season overshadow his, because otherwise...

Dun dun DUN DUN DUN DUN!

Discuss.

*Also overlooked: Juan Uribe and his 22 home runs while Pablo can't hit, Renteria quietly not sucking so much, Brian Sabean having a pretty damned fine season.
