Kerry would for 2-3 years at 8-10mm....He might actually do more harm to Cleveland than good. I'm not convinced, despite his performance in 2008, that he is a viable option pitching as a closer.

Put it this way, if we were spending this kind of money on a reliever, I wouldn't be pursuing Kerry Wood.

It is pretty simple, you are wasting time and energy on something you don't want to do, so just get away from it and find another thread to post on.

Give the dude some credit for trying to make this offseason interesting, half of the stuff professionals write turns out to be rumor anyway, and you don't go and write full page essays to the writers telling them they are ****ing idiots.

I named my Sox message board Fantasy Football team the Rockabilly Rumors, and they lived up to their names. They started out so big and glorious, destroying everyone. However, mid season, they faded. End of the season, they got VERY defensive and made the playoffs. However, in the end, they came up very short and were a first round knock out. :(:

It would be nice to be able to bat around Wood a few more times a season!

You know if it's in the range I've heard for only two years, I wish we could have had him. You can never have too much bullpen help.

He was going to make more money signing as a closer than as a 7th/8th inning guy. Therefore, no chance he was coming here.

2 years/20mill
ummm... why am i surprised that he actually got that much? i feel like 2 years/16mill max wouldve been enough.
