Take me out to the brawl game?

Some of baseball's old-school traditions are fun. Some leave us scratching our heads. But Dusty Baker really raised eyebrows Monday with his suggestion that Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto and Cubs hurler Matt Garza settle their differences with their fists after Garza took issue with Cueto throwing a pitch over David DeJesus' head. While most baseball bench-clearing incidents don't end in fights, they can lead to injuries, as the Dodgers learned when Zack Grienke broke his collarbone earlier this season.
