I don't know if anyone happens to be watching this game, but the White Sox and Cubs just had a brawl started by a Pierzynski/Barrett collision at the plate (Pierzynski scoring), followed by Barrett punching Pierzynski in the eye, Podsednik tackling Barrett, and Brian Anderson (one of the most hilarious men in the league) just throwing bombs at John Mabry. Missing, but throwing bombs.

I know a lot of folks get upset about this sort of thing, and I wouldn't want it happening all the time, but the odd basebrawl is just a lot of fun if you ask me, even when it's Willis Roberts fleeing to center field to escape the wrath of Carlos Baerga.
