Rieper: White Sox announcer Ed Farmer is not a fan of the Royals

Is Farmer’s goal to make Harrelson look sympathetic by comparison?

Years later, Cowens, as a member of the Tigers, would face Farmer, then with the White Sox. Cowens had not forgotten about what had happened. On a routine grounder, Cowens ran straight for the pitchers mound. Cowens landed a few punches, even ripping Farmer’s nostrils in a bench-clearing brawl. The brawl was so violent, it led to charges being filed, potentially preventing Cowens from returning to Chicago until Farmer agreed to drop the charges in exchange for an apology. But perhaps that is the kind of violence Farmer is looking for to enforce the “no fun” rules of baseball
