Rosenthal later explained that Bumgarner's contract allows him to block trades to eight teams.

Madison Bumgarner has submitted an eight-team no-trade list to the San Francisco Giants, according to a report.

Around this time a year ago, Philadelphia never would have been considered a destination for Bumgarner since the team was going through rebuilding mode, but obviously the circumstances are much different now.

Lindsey Graham Advises Trump Jr to Ignore His Senate Subpoena
But this week he is directing the president's son to at least show up, but then refuse to answer the panel's questions. Trump Jr. has not commented on Twitter about the subpoena, but has retweeted dozens of posts slamming the development.

And if that wasn't frustrating enough for the Giants, it looks like the team is already looking ahead with the intention of the struggles continuing in 2019 by considering the possibility of trading Bumgarner before the deadline. Justin Verlander had the Houston Astros on his no-trade list and accepted a trade to them after some convincing from the players on the roster.

What gives? Why would a player the caliber of Bumgarner, who is known for how he competes in October in a World Series run choose to list so many title contenders on his no-trade list? He is in the last year of a five-year, $35 million contract that will pay him $12 million this year.

Over his 11-year career, Bumgarner has compiled a 112-87 record with a 3.06 ERA, four All-Star nods, and a World Series MVP award.

US Pres. Trump: We are now a much bigger economy than China
According to the president, China buys nearly $500 billion less from the United States than the U.S. does from China. The move comes after Beijing threatened "necessary countermeasures" for Trump's tariffs on Friday.

Back when I wrote my "Boston Red Sox: 5 wicked predictions 2019 and beyond" article, I predicted that the Red Sox would let Chris Sale walk and target Bumgarner in free agency as their ace. The southpaw has a 3.99 ERA and 51 strikeouts through eight starts this season. He also has one game finished, 15 complete games, and six shutouts.

In the bottom of the first inning however, Even Longoria responded with a solo home run to alleviate the damage, but true relief didn't come until the bottom of the fourth.
