Giants’ Madison Bumgarner Says Rule Changes ‘Out of Hand’

Published

San Francisco Giants pitcher Madison Bumgarner isn’t a big fan of all the rule changes, and believes things are ‘out of hand’.

Bumgarner is mostly referring to the idea of a “universal” designated hitter, but is frustrated nonetheless.

“I understand they don’t care what I say,” Bumgarner said, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. “I’ll play whatever rules we have, but I think it’s kind of getting out of hand.

“Honestly, I don’t care anymore. We’ve changed so many rules, I can’t keep up with it. I play the game that they have for us. Who knows what that’s going to be when I’m finished, as much as I’ve seen changes in the little time I’ve been here.”

“Don’t get me wrong,” Bumgarner said. “My job is pitching. That’s what I’m going to focus on doing. But the whole reason I work on hitting is because that’s how we play in the National League. You can help a team win a game.”

Bryce Harper ‘Unsure’ About Signing with Phillies

Following the breaking news that Manny Machado had agreed to terms on a massive 10-year, $300 million deal with the San Diego Padres, the next superstar domino expected to fall is Bryce Harper.

Multiple reports are linking Harper with the Philadelphia Phillies, who are apparently willing to pay Harper’s lofty price tag demand, but it’s not a “slam dunk” that Harper lands in Philly.

According to SNY’s Andy Martino, Harper is “unsure” about signing with the Phillies.

This echos a December report from the New York Post’s Joel Sherman, one that says Harper wasn’t “particularly” fond of playing in Philadelphia.

Harper to the Phillies may not be the slam dunk that reports indicate, which means a mystery team may be luring Harper in.
