Dr. Timothy Kremchek wa spleased with the progress of Kerry Wood (shoulder) after examining him last week. Would is expected to begin throwing next month.

Looks like another wise Baker decision to have him throw out of the bullpen last year after surgery was already deemed necessary for Wood.

He needs to come out of the bullpen when the sun is less fierce."

Dusty Baker and injury-prone players Mark Prior and Kerry Wood don't mix well.

Does anyone still have trusty in Dusty?
