CARTILAGE CUISINE

Chaos erupted near the Albuquerque Isotopes’ dugout last week when Miguel Olivo and Alex Guerrero began fighting during a road game in Salt Lake.

Guerrero’s agent claimed part of his client’s ear was bitten off, a la Mike Tyson.

The incident happened on Kids Day at Smith’s Ballpark, a promotion that included students from 17 school districts.

Since this is minor league baseball, who knows, maybe the Bees will start holding an annual “Cannibal Night” promotion.

Eat one ear, get the second free.
