Uh-oh.

From MLB.com:
Kerry Wood left today's game against the Rangers after calling for a trainer while warming up for the third inning.

Probably about as Vintage as him catching his toupee on fire.

If this is major...this Wood(s) injury is going to be the reason the Cubs do not make the playoffs or the World Series.

I'm starting to believe it was a big mistake to take Wood and Prior as my first two pitchers in the WSI keeper league!:D:

They better sell A LOT of Groud up Baseball Spaghetti, looks like this could be the start of a bad year for the Cubbies! Good luck getting to 13 wins this year Kerry!

welcome to the world of bad mechanics.

Do you think so? I've heard multiple opinions on what he was doing wrong, throwing across his body, bad arm slot on his "slurve", etc. I thought that was supposed to be all ironed out?

If this is another serious injury, this has to end ANY argument of Wood over Buehrle. Wood is injured nearly every season. I don't care how many K's he gets, I don't want him on my team!

He refused to change his mechanics after the initial major elbow injury. He was restricted from throwing that really nasty slider he initially had, but came back to it after a while. Same bad mechanics. It's the book on Wood. Will never be a reliably healthy pitcher. He hasn't done anything to change that.

I agree, but year after year all the "experts" rank Wood & his 12 win seasons ahead of Buehrle & his 16 win (average) seasons.... It's amazing....

Wood & Prior combined for what, 43 starts & 14 wins last season?

Can't argue with that, it seems to be the same old story every year with this kid. If he wasn't a Flub I'd probably feel more bad for him, no one likes to see players get injured.

Hilarious. Absolutely hilarious. There's pandemonium and talk about needing to trade Wood over on the ESPN Cubs board.

One interesting post that possibly some of the more experienced here might be able to shed light on: "Your shoulder just doesn't get sore. it's different from the elbow where elbows can have soreness because of the pressure put on it from throwing overhand, but shoulders don't get sore because of throwing. They get sore when something is wrong with it. "

I can't believe that's actually true, but I wonder what the correlation is between shoulder pain and minor injuries v. eventually having something major. Anyone?

Look at the toolbox Flub fans squirm. (http://www.northsidebaseball.com/Forum/viewtopic.php?t=18956&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=75)

They are saying on ESPN that Kerry will make his next start. That probably was the guy that said Mark Prior would be 100% in late April.

This is funny over there at the Flubs message board...this was a REAL MESSAGE you can read at the link provided above in my previous message...

They were talking about how Carrie might have had cramps. A person writes "It's 78 in Mesa right now."

Then somebody obviously functionally retarded writes-

"Is it a hot 78?"

Has this clown gone a full season without injury since '98?

Maybe he'll get his first 14-win season next year then.

Has this clown gone a full season without injury since '98?Two, actually. He started 32 games in 2002 and 30 in 2003. He won 12 in 2002 (for a very bad Cubs team) and 14 in 2003 (can you say breakout?) for a division winner. So let's see...in Wood's best year he won the same number of games as Mark Buehrle in his worst year.:o: He did put up great stats, though.

So let's see...in Wood's best year he won the same number of games as Mark Buehrle in his worst year.:o: He did put up great stats, though.

And even if you think wins are close to meaningless (like myself), there is plenty of other statistical evidence to suggest that Buehrle is the better pitcher.

First is (obviously) the durability factor. Buehrle had only 3 starts before 2001 and Wood had a full year in 1998 (essentially 3 more years for Wood), yet Wood has only started 25 more games that Mark. Also, Wood has only thrown about 55 more innings than Buehrle in his career.

Secondly, Wood has struck out more than twice the number of hitters than Buehrle has over his career. Why do I bring this up? Because, despite this, Buehrle has a better K/BB ratio (2.42 vs 2.36)!

If ERA+ means anything to anyone here, Buehrle's is 125 career vs 117 of Wood because of Buehrle's much more impressive 3.76 ERA in the AL in a hitter's park compared to Wood's 3.63 in the NL in more of a pitcher's park.

The list goes on, but we all know who the better pitcher is.

I heard via NBC 5 that the Cubs think this is not serious. Based on the Cubs medical staff's track record, Cub fans can wear "We AIN'T got Wood!" tee shirts.

I'll believe the Cubbie report on Wood's shoulder when he's pitching on Monday, against the Sox.

Yeah, it's not just bad karma, it's not right. In a way I can understand the feeling. We've been hearing for seven years or more about Carrie Wood and how great he is. So, when Wood goes down with an injury, again, I can understand feelings of my fellow Sox fans. But, if this were a Sox pitcher who were hurt and it were Cubbie fans who were happy about it, we'd rightfully be ticked off.

Every pitcher, even those who have supposedly perfect mechanics, can go down with an injury.
