Farnsworth Appeals

Contrary to what was indicated yesterday, the Tribune reported today that Kyle Farnsworth will appeal his 3-game suspension for his part in last week's brawl with the Reds.

Usually, in situations like this the player gets a small reduction, so most likely he'll get it cut to two games. What this actually accomplishes is to have him available for the White Sox series, and maybe serve the suspension while the Cubs are in Philadelphia next week.

I checked around the Sports Illustrated website to see if I could find a link to the great photo of Kyle lacing into Paul Wilson, but apparently it's only in the magazine. Still worth the price; go find a copy.
