SP Madison Bumgarner Sources I trust and respect hate Bumgarner's mechanics. Of course, I hate relying on opinions like this, because there's always some internet guru that will say they predicted that this pitcher or that pitcher would explode. That said, these are guys who are above that sort of thing and who watch baseball pitchers for a living. Take Bumgarner's age and the expected innings increase into account as well and he's not just red, he's bright flashing red. I hope I'm wrong here because he's very talented.
