He's on the DL; they have to pay him, either way. I'm sure if they were in contention, he'd be on a fast track, but I think it's smart to just bring him back for a handful of games at the end of this season or not at all.

Some other people are seeing the bright side of this, maybe no one else thinks it's a deliberate move... yet.

Madison Bumgarner’s injury turning out to be a good thing

So back when Bumgarner fell off his bike and got a boo-boo, I sort of thought it was fishy. I finally said it out loud yesterday and it sounds right: The Giants are red-shirting him. They saw early on that this team would need to shape up to make it to .500, and it's a terrible thing to keep running your horse out there when there's zero hope. Keeping in mind that theory that a pitcher has X number of pitches in his arm, period, why waste Bumgarner's on a .350 season?

I don't think he went that far off the line.   It wasn't a shoulder down, spikes up, making no attempt to touch the plate kind of thing.  He did end up on the plate  The rule says "If the runner slides into the plate in an appropriate manner, he shall not be adjudged to have violated Rule"   Although on closer examination of the rules and video I will now concede if he had gotten in safe they would have called him out on review.  Down in the notes to the rule there is the line "A slide shall be deemed appropriate, in the case of a feet first slide, if the runner’s buttocks and legs should hit the ground before contact with the catcher."  His legs were down but his butt hadn't quite made it yet.  If he had gotten his ass down a little quicker though it would have been perfectly legal.  Once the catcher gets the ball they both have the right to the base path and some collisions are still going to occur.

Writing a deathbed scenario for the Tigers today a local scribe came up with a stat that may show that the Tigers just don't care, 
they are 0-9 in games played on getaway days.  
you know how these kinds of stats are but still {#Ask}
