Madison Bumgarner in Dirt Bike Accident, by Chuck Strom

Just heard that Giant pitcher Madison Bumgarner just banged up his ribs and pitching shoulder on a dirt bike. Out six to eight weeks. A “What were you thinking?” moment if there ever was one. Reminiscent of former Giant second baseman Jeff Kent’s injury from popping wheelies during spring training in 2002. The Giants will almost certainly make nice in public, but there are likely some steamed-up executives in their front office. Wonder if there was any contract language covering that sort of thing?
