View Full Version : Carrie Woods...Not done yet

Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/5982/) is pitching despite a damaged rotator cuff. A team source told the Chicago Tribune, Wood is likely to be shut down by September if management believes the Cubs have little or no chance to overcome the sizable deficit they face. Wood would then have surgery to clean up debris in his rotator cuff and labrum and, the team hopes, be ready to go by the start of spring training.

The Cubs plan to give Wood every opportunity to regain his role as a starter next year and since Wood's absence wouldn't seem to make a huge impact on their team or fantasy teams, shutting him down seems like the right thing to do.

Great idea

Seriously, continuing to let him pitch with yet another shoulder injury in an already lost season?

That organization is an embarrassment

When will they learn?

Uh, I hate to bring up an obvious point, but wouldn't the extra month of healing time if he had the surgery now make him better prepared come next spring? What the **** are they smoking over there?

They can't shut him down. There is still such a good chance for them to make the playoffs and when they do he may have a 20 strikeout game and lead them all the way.

This makes me even more embarrassed for Cubs fans.

CUBS MANAGEMENT: "Don't fret, oh you bewildered herd! Just pony up for your tickets and make sure you come to the park dressed in your "W" t-shirts ready to booze it up. We've got an unlimited supply of False Hope to peddle you." :rolling:
