Reds' Amir Garrett Fights Entire Pirates Team: There was an actual brawl during the Reds/Pirates game Tuesday night. After a season of bad blood between the teams, 6-foot-6 Reds pitcher Amir Garrett charged single-handedly into the entire Pirates team and began throwing haymakers; Reds manager David Bell came back from being ejected to participate, which doesn't happen often; and Yasiel Puig fought as news was breaking of his trade to the Cleveland Indians.

Wow, yeah, that was a real fight. Garrett just rushes to that Pirates dugout with real punches.

Was Puig fighting to avoid any chance of being accidentally shipped to San Diego in the 3 way trade?

The bad blood between these two teams has been great this year. Certainly, the two are mired in an epic race for ...[checks standings]...last place in the NL Central?

I miss the days when both teams were relevant and badass. Both had new circular multi purpose stadiums near the water (ugh) and both wore doubleknit unis (gag). But the rosters were outstanding.

Pining for the days of two hour ballgames and low six figure salaries. Stargell, Parker, and Madlock in the pillbox layer cake hats looking like the crew of a battle tested Union ironclad.
