"I feel close"

It sounds like things are OK for the ace. 

That quote is Madison Bumgarner describing how he felt yesterday -- he gave up a homer to Albert Pujols and that was it. 

Here's the story --

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Madison Bumgarner says there's still some work to be done in his final Spring Training starts, but if Sunday was any indication, he appears to be ready for Opening Day.
"I feel close," Bumgarner said when asked if he's ready for Opening Day. "I won't start honing in on that start until after my last Spring Training start."

The Giants' ace may feel close, but he sure looks like he's already there.
Bumgarner was dominant Sunday as he limited the Angels to just one hit--- an Albert Pujols solo home run -- over six innings in a 3-2 Halos win.
"Everything's felt really good the last few times out," Bumgarner said. "All pitches are feeling good. I feel like my secondary pitches are better than they usually are at this point in time. I feel pretty good."
The 25-year old left-hander retired 18 of the 19 batters he faced, including 16 straight to finish his outing.
However, it's only March 22, and Bumgarner isn't focused on the results just yet.
"It's just about getting ready for the 2015 season," Bumgarner said. "It's not about how good you are or how bad you are in Spring Training. It's just about getting ready."
