The San Francisco Giants are wasting no time as the gear up for an even-number year.

Bumgarner, who went 18-9 with a 2.93 ERA and 234 strikeouts last season, was the 2014 World Series MVP.

Since the 2009 season, San Francisco has missed the postseason in every odd-number year but has won the World Series in every even-number year. And Bumgarner has been a big part of that success.

It will be the third consecutive Opening Day start for MadBum.
