Farns Update

Kyle Farnsworth pulled out his butt-whooping skills this weekend in a game between the Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals. Runelvys Hernandez hit Carlos Guillen in the head causing the benches and bullpens to clear. Hernandez had hit two people prior to this and Mike Maroth nailed a guy, albeit accidentally, causing the umpire to issue the warnings.

After the bullpens cleared, there was just a big mass of bodies around home plate, although no one was really doing anything. Out of the blue, the Farns stealthily ran around the crowd and football tackled Jeremy Affeldt and pinned him to the ground. It was a beautiful reminder of his total domination over Paul Wilson a few years back.

Although I never liked your regular two week slumps, I'll miss your 101 MPH heat, your black belt skills, and your overall aloofness.

Here's to you, Dr. Tightpants.
