Who would win a fight between Chris Getz and Johnny Giavotella?

The scenario: Getz says that "Thanatopsis" was William Cullen Bryant's best poem, Giavotella insists that his best work was actually "Inscription for the Entrance to a Wood." Things deteriorate. So who wins the fight before Francoeur jumps in and reminds everyone "we're all on the same team here!"

  • Chris Getz: listed size: 5'11, 185. Strengths: seniority, once knew Ozzie Guillen. Weaknesses: has dyed hair in past, shouldering considerable ennui.
  • Johnny Giavotella: listed size: 5'8, 185. Strengths: abnormally large forearms, from Louisiana. Weaknesses: has terrible nickname.
