Literally Busting Cubs Upside Their Heads
There’s been some talk about brawls lately involving the Padres. I’m not sure why that is, but I figured I’d better get in on it before it gets to be a tiresome subject.
What? It’s already a tiresome subject? Well, screw it. I’m going to write something about it anyway.
Vocal Minority brought up the Padres’ 1984 brawl with the Braves, where the legend of Shirtless Ed Whitson came from. But I also remember the brawl on July 7, 1987 with the Cubs in Chicago’s Wrigley Field.
And, wouldn’t you know it? The Padres are playing this week in Chicago, at Wrigley Field, and against the Cubs.
What are the odds?*
