Madison Bumgarner was placed on the DL yesterday.
He should be fined his pay for the whole time he is on the DL. He had no real right to go mountainbiking and put himself at risk for such an injury. Players have a responsibility to refrain from activities with a real possibility of injuries.
Like taking the ball on the short rest so consistently one pitcher throws a third of a teams innings in a world series? Giants would complete frauds if they did anything to him. He is a stud on a very team friendly deal who has shown a willingness to put the team above himself and his long term future. SF is doing the right thing by doing nothing.
