Wild Thing

The first thing I thought of when I saw Kyle Farnsworth's new J-Lo glasses was, "What a pretty, pretty princess!"

Well, that was second after the usual, "Farnsworth? Fucking Fransworth!" from several years of residual Cub bitterness.

I was honestly worried that the whole solution to his control problems would come from the addition of vision and we'd all have to listen to Wild Thing Ricky Vaughn references as he tore through the AL this year and took Mo Rivera's job.

Then he got rocked for four runs faster than I can eat four White Castle burgers. When the dust had cleared, Farnsworth pitched a third of an inning, four runs, all four earned, a walk and a strikeout.

I should have known better than to worry.

Side note: This post was echoed almost a year to the day ago, with Farnsworth melting down in Minneapolis and the Yankees losing 5-1 on April 17, 2006. Weird...
