FARNSWORTH TRADED; IN RELATED NEWS, GOD PROVEN TO EXIST
The Chicago Tribune is reporting that the Cubs have unloaded enigmatic reliever Kyle "Dr. Tightpants" Farnsworth to the Detroit Tigers for pitcher Roberto Novoa, infielder Scott Moore and outfielder Clarence "Bo" Flowers.
Nova will replace Farnsworth on the 25-man-roster, while Moore and Fowers are young prospects who probably won't see action above high A ball in 2005.
Nova hasn't see much Major League action, but as long as he doesn't break his foot by kicking baseballs at the scoreboard, or injure his leg by kicking a clubhouse fan, or contract The Syph by sleeping with the Wrigley groupies, or leave early on the last game of the season, or fall asleep in the middle of a game...
Well, let's just say there are benefits to Novoa being the Cubs reliever, rather than Farnsworth.
