Bumgarner rejects idea of DH moving to National League, takes offense at Scherzer’s “wet newspaper” comment

“Oh, well, my wet newspaper is 34 ½ inches, 33 ½ ounces, and I’m waiting on some new ones right now,” said Bumgarner, asked for comment.

“What if he got hurt pitching? Should we say we can’t pitch anymore?” Bumgarner said. “I hate what happened to him. He works his butt off out there. But I don’t think it was because he was hitting. What if he gets hurt getting out of his truck? You tell him not to drive anymore?

Bumgarner is 0 for 7 with four strikeouts and a sacrifice this year, but few pitchers loom as a bigger threat at the plate. Last season, he hit four home runs – and became the first pitcher to hit two grand slams in a season since 1966, when Atlanta’s Tony Cloninger hit two in a game at Candlestick Park.

Jeff Kent was unavailable for comment.
