Giants ace Madison Bumgarner, out since a bicycle accident April 20, says he is ready to return to the Giants, who are 27 games back of the first-place Dodgers and badly in need of some good news.
Mens Carnell Lake Jersey Doesn’t matter whether we were winning every game or we lost every game. It’s not going to change the fact that I want to be out there, Bumgarner told reporters (via the San Jose Mercury News) after a dominant 86-pitch outing for Single-A San Jose on Monday night.
Rays starter Chris Archer will be headed to his second All-Star Game, but the other four pitchers added Friday are first-timers: Alex Wood (Dodgers), Chris Devenski (Astros), Roberto Osuna (Blue Jays) and Brandon Kintzler (Twins).
Their addition brings the total to 28 first-time All-Stars set to be in uniform Tuesday night in Miami.
The five pitchers now set to make the trip will replace the injured Dallas Keuchel (Astros) and four hurlers scheduled to start Sunday and thus ineligible to pitch in Tuesday’s game: Clayton Kershaw (Dodgers), Corey Kluber (Indians), Yu Darvish (Rangers) and Michael Fulmer (Tigers).
Mens Greg Zuerlein Jersey Ultimately, this is an entirely personal decision on the part of Durant. He was in a tough spot. If he says he won’t take a pay cut, and it costs the team Iguodala because ownership won’t pay, he gets questioned. If he takes the pay cut to appease ownership, he still gets questioned.
In the end, if it’s something he is comfortable with as a human being with a nine-figure net worth, so be it. But because of this choice, the Warriors’ full roster is back in the fold, and they’ll enter the season as the favorite over the field in the league.
