D-backs troll Giants over Madison Bumgarner signing, 2017 Opening Day

Madison Bumgarner left the Giants for the Arizona Diamondbacks in free agency this offseason, and in an ironic twist, MLB aired the 2017 Opening Day game between the two teams Thursday.

On April 2, 2017, the Giants sent Bumgarner to the mound in an effort to win their fourth straight Opening Day.

Bumgarner had an incredible day on the mound and at the plate. In addition to striking out 11 batters in seven innings, the Giants ace also belted two home runs.

But Mark Melancon, making his Giants’ debut, blew the save in the bottom of the ninth.

Mind you, given how things have gone for Bumgarner since then, caution might be paid with this approach….
