He might not be with the Giants anymore, but Madison Bumgarner hasn’t changed a bit.
The ol’ red ass himself was displeased after Saturday’s D-Backs win over the Nationals, with the way Washington outfielder Victor Robles admired his home run off Bumgarner.
“That guy’s a clown,” Bumgarner said postgame with an annoyed chuckle. “Golly. No shame. No shame. It’s 7-1, you hit your third homer of the year, you act like Barry Bonds breaking the record. Clean it up. I don’t care about giving up the run. Hell we won 7-2, 8-2, whatever it was. It’s frustrating.
“I’m the old, grumpy guy, I know. But that type of stuff didn’t used to happen. Now it’s, it’s ridiculous.”
Robles decided to respond on Sunday in hilarious fashion, donning a red clown nose in the dugout.
It’s unclear if Bumgarner has received word of Robles’ antics, but we’re gonna go out on a limb here and say that he probably won’t think it’s all that funny.
