The Daily Southtown, a Chicago daily, reported that Kerry Wood (http://www.baseballprospectus.com/pecota/woodke02.php) was telling teammates that he was planning on shutting it down for '04. While I'll see Kerry on Wednesday, I did get a chance to speak with several Cubs sources Tuesday, and all adamantly deny anything of the sort. Not only is Wood denying he said it, he denied he thought it. The Southtown does some good reporting, though, and sources sucker us all sometimes. Wood will have one more simulated game, likely on Wednesday, before heading out. Expect him back after the ASB.http://www.baseballprospectus.com/article.php?articleid=3019

He's still a guarenteed 20 game winner though.

And Cubs fans thought we were just being biased when we told them that they should hope he can win more than 14 games in a year before they start worrying about 20.

Let's just hope he's out for a long, long time.

They left off the last "S" for strike-out artist...

Since I don't have a subscription to BP, when did this note/article appear? Is it old or new?

I was going to start this thread myself, but I figured I'd just get one of these:

For what it's worth there is a story today in the Tribune (not sure) saying he'll be back in two weeks.

With as much Cubs as you see here, figured someone one would.

The day post the link it appeared, so it is new. I didn't see the item in the Daily Southtown so couldn't tell you about that.

Lip,

Didn't they say that about 6 weeks ago, or however long he has been out? :?:

Sure he is....so if you ask me, FWIW it's not worth anything.

FWIW. :smile:

Who cares whether he wins or loses? All that's important is that he lead the league in strikeouts.

I guess you can write off that league-leading 14 quality win season!
