Testosterone ran rampant yesterday as Chicago Cubs pitcher Kyle Farnsworth defended himself from Cincinnati Reds pitcher Paul Wilson who lunged towards Farnsworth after a too-close-for-comfort pitch. Sure they lost 3-1, but in the scrappy, playground-style knock-down fight game, the Cubs so won. And what did Cubs manager Dusty Baker have to say of the incident? "I know we're not the club to have bad blood with because we've got some guys who can hurt you with that ball. I don't suggest too many people get in some knock-down war with us." Wilson who was ejected from the game with a bloody, scraped up nose learned that the hard way. And that's the Chicago way.
