While Madison Bumgarner did bring his horses from his home in North Carolina to Giants camp in Arizona, sadly, he didn't ride his horses all the way. I know, I'm disappointed, too. I envisioned Bumgarner, dressed like Clint Eastwood in "A Fistful of Dollars," slowly riding across the country while stopping only to sleep in a thick forest or help some old woman find her dog.
Instead, he drove his somewhere-between-one-and-10 horses in a trailer across the country. Still cool, but maybe not movie-of-the-week level. Unless, of course, he teams up with new teammate and noted horse enthusiast Johnny Cueto , and the two become frontier lawmen.
There's a chance. As Cueto told MLB.com's Chris Haft, "We'll see if he sells me one or gives me one for free."
If that's all that stands in the way of "Cueto and MadBum: Frontier Justice," well, I'm sure we could crowdfund that.
