Jeff Kent-Walt Weiss Memorial Baseball Darwin Awards, VII
by Mike Carminati
"You wish you could have handled your frustration differently because it affects not just yourself but everyone else. This game is tough enough to keep everybody healthy and you hate to have injuries that cost DL time that weren't done on the field."
With those immortal words the Cubs' Kyle Farnsworth was placed on the DL. He is expected to miss at least three weeks.
You see, after giving up six runs in the ninth against the Astros on Friday, Farnsworth took his frustrations on an electric fan in the runway from the dugout in an incident that Dusty Baker called, "a valuable lesson here, an expensive one."
Of course, the Cubs are fighting for their playoff lives. They are in a three-way race for the wild card in the NL. Now they will probably have to fight on without the mercurial Farnsworth. Nicely done, Kyle!
