    The headlock and punches were wonderful. One-sided, like grandpa kicking a kid's ass.

  6. Kyle Farnsworth vs. the Reds in 2003.

    I mostly like this one because I was at the game. I like it even more because I got home after the game, a replay of the game was on, and I could hear Steve Stone going absolutely crazy on Danny Graves for running his mouth from the dugout after he'd been scratched from the start.

    I'd have to search YouTube, but I mostly remember Farnsworth just spearing some Reds player.

    There was also that great Braves-Padres fight in the 1980s that started when Pascual Perez kept plunking guys. The best part was when Bob Horner, who was out with one of his many wrist injuries, came out of the dugout to stop Champ Summers from going after Perez. Horner had come down from the press box when everyone started throwing at everyone else just in case there was trouble.

    Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any photos of that one through Google.

    I believe it was Paul Wilson, and that brawl also gave us the colorful phrase, 'racky-tacked' courtesy of Stone.

    The one in '87 after Eric Show beaned Andre Dawson at Wrigley. Show ran like a little bitch and the Cubs literally chased him into his own dugout ready to kick his ass. Dawson was down for a few minutes, then started toward the empty mound as soon as he got up.

    I believe that was during Dawson's MVP season.

    The Cubs had a pretty good one with the Mets in August of 1984 at Wrigley. Cubs torched Ed Lynch for five runs in the fourth inning in the second game of a doubleheader. He drills Keith Moreland with a pitch and away we go.

    What made it memorable was that after the teams had been separated and returned to their dugouts, some of the Mets almost went into the stands after some fans behind their dugout. Cubs wound up sweeping the doubleheader and the series and pretty much buried the Mets.
