It’s been a busy week for the Giants and for our good friends at BreakingT. The team made five trades at the deadlnie and Pablo Sandoval’s decision to punt on pronouncing “Yastrzemski” led to the new nickname “Glass of Whiskey” and this new t-shirt to mark that moment. The team’s decision to hold on to Madison Bumgarner rather than trade him compelled Breaking T to follow up their Yastrzemski design with a brand new, celebratory shirt for the Giants’ ace:
In case you don’t remember where that quote:
Bumgarner on trade rumors: “I don’t give a shit. I’m here to win games for this team and that’s what I’m doing.”— Alex Pavlovic (@PavlovicNBCS) July 19, 2019
Here’s a closer look at the shirt, which you can order by clicking here.
From BreakingT’s description:
Madison Bumgarner responded to trade rumors in the most MadBum way possible.
Officially licensed product of the MLB Players Association.
Orange and cream print on a super-comfortable black tee.
Premium, lightweight cotton/poly-blended crewneck. Durable, yet ultra-soft. Unisex sizing with a snug fit.
Designed by Nick Torres.
Printed in the USA.
Like I said in the Yastrzemski shirt post:
Yes, in 2022, you will have a drawer or closet of BreakingT shirts featuring Pablo Sandoval, Alex Dickerson, and Mike Yastrzemski, and you will remember why. For at least one surprising season — Bruce Bochy’s final season — the Giants won with a bunch of random guys.
Yet after all these BreakingT events, we haven’t had one for Madison Bumgarner, the least random guy. Madison Bumgarner! The face of the franchise!
What a face!
