Kerry Wood agrees to a one-year $3 million deal, with 2013 option.

Wood's pathetic. He'd pitch for free for the Cubs. Maybe its a morbid sense of guilt on his part for all of the money he stole from them over the years.

I disagree. I think it's great to see a guy stick with a team and be loyal, maybe to a fault. Plus, Wood always seemed to give his all, even though he suffered a lot of injuries.

I'll give him credit for sticking in town since he can continue his charity work here, which he does quite a bit of.

Probably has a financial interest in whatever company screenprints those "WE GOT WOOD" shirts they hawk on Waveland.

It's surprising he decided to stay. I figured he'd at least go to a team that actually stood a chance at the playoffs, but to each his own. It is nice to see a player stay loyal.

He played a little hardball with them, even mentioned the South Side as a possible destination. I'd bet a lemon cookie we never had any interest this time around.

Just get revenge when the Flubs fail to win 70 games this season.

Damn Sox fans with their petty inferiority complex/chip on the shoulder/little brother syndrome...

Yeah. Loyalty is all good until a certain point. Then the kidding is over. I'm a believer that you play to win the game. The Cubs don't win a lot of games often. I respect the action, but don't understand the motivation anymore.

He wants to be the new Ron Santo.

Moreland is just keeping his seat warm until he retires.

Loyalty is one thing, but when you take less money to stay with a team that doesn't have a prayer of winning, it gives me the impression that you aren't necessarily the "gamer" everyone proclaims you as.

Heard the Phillies were interested. Can't believe a guy would have no interest in geting a ring! Maybe he'd rather play where there is no pressure.

The Sox very well could challenge that mark.

A lot of people may have said the same about Lance Berkman last year. Worked out OK for him.

Who saw the Cub fans' reaction when Wood walked out at the start of the convention? You'd think Santo had just been brought back from the dead.

Well, perhaps you weren't aware of the fact that he once struck out 20 batters in a game back in 1998. Did you know that ? Or that in 13 seasons, he has 86 career wins (86-73), along with 63 saves ? if thosse stats don't scream Hall of Fame, and retirement of his number, I don't know what does !

You left out his sterling performance in Game VII of the 2003 NLCS.

A little different. The Cardinals actually make an effort to put a solid product on the field.

They were picked what? 3rd-4th in that division last year?

And he hit a HR too, if I remember right. A lineup of nine Kerry Woods would have won that game 170-0!

I thought the line on Wood was the there was no way he'd ever sign with the Sox?

This line made me puke in my mouth a little bit:

but in the end, he chose to stay with the organization that was in his heart.


but otherwise, who cares, let him stay with the Cubs. It's what he wanted and it worked out, so good for him.
