Hello and happy Sunday to you. I hope your Saturday was great, and I hope your Sunday is better.
Last week I decided to fill the Sunday BPs with draft comments that didn’t age well, 90% for amusement, and 10% so we can feel better in June when we all hate the San Francisco Giants pick. If you have a pick you’d like me to revisit next week, mention it in the comments.
Again, I don’t bring any of these up to be an internet bully. If you’ve ever had a draft opinion, then you know what it’s like to be laughably, horribly wrong. We’ve all been there. We’ll all be there again, unless we stop opining about draft picks. Which is probably smart, but definitely not fun.
So keep them coming. You’ll be right occasionally, and you can brag when you are, but don’t expect me to revisit those. They’re not so fun.
Today is all about Madison Bumgarner, whom the Giants took with the 10th pick in the 2007 MLB Draft.
Let’s see how much the McCovey Chronicles community loved that pick!
Beau Mills never made the majors.
Did Barry Bonds hit a home run today?
Just one lone dinger.
May 3, 2001: Against the Pittsburgh Pirates, Bonds hit a 2-run home run in the 1st inning off of Jimmy Anderson, scoring Ramon Martinez. It gave the Giants a 2-0 lead, but they would lose 4-3. It was his 13th home run of the year.
I hope your Sunday is much better than those Bumgarner draft opinions.
