Dodgers: Three Takeaways From the Dodgers’ Weekend Series in Frisco
The Dodgers-Giants Rivalry is alive and well
The last few years it seems like any arguments between the Dodgers and Giants were focused on Yasiel Puig and Madison Bumgarner. Yasiel Puig would unload on a Bumgarner pitch and let off one of his signature bat flips. In return, Madison would become irate and yell at Puig as he rounded the basepaths.
On Sunday a similar scene occurred, although this time it was an epic splash bomb off the bat of Max Muncy. Despite his usual nonchalant bat flip and a very quick glance at the ball, Bumgarner seemed bothered by Muncy and began walking towards him and shouting at Max. This could just be classified as MadBum being MadBum, AKA mad over giving up a home run.
The home run was a big one as it became the winning run as it was the only run scored between the two teams. It also helped prove that the Dodgers-Giants rivalry is alive and well. Even without Yasiel Puig, the rivalry seems to be brought out whenever Madison Bumgarner is on the mound. The Dodgers could face Bumgarner in the postseason if he is traded to a contender.
