Madison Bumgarner to Alex Guerrero: ‘You’re not that f—ing good’
Madison Bumgarner cursed at Los Angeles Dodgers third baseman Alex Guerrero on Tuesday night, and it seemed pretty uncalled for.
During the seventh inning of the San Francisco Giants’ 2-1 win over the Dodgers, Guerrero was upset with himself for popping up a pitch that he apparently felt was very hittable. He expressed his frustration by letting out a yell and spinning as he left the batter’s box.
For some reason, Bumgarner did not appreciate it. As Guerrero was heading back to the dugout, the Giants’ ace told him “you’re not that f—ing good” multiple times. Here’s the full video:
The way Bumgarner reacted, you would have thought Guerrero had pimped a home run or tried to show the left-hander up in some way. Perhaps Bumgarner felt that he had made no mistakes on a night where he fired eight innings of five-hit ball, and he didn’t want Guerrero indicating otherwise.
As Max Scherzer could tell you, Bumgarner seems to be feeling a bit irritable over the past week or so. Maybe he’s battling the sniffles.
