  • Cubs signed Wood for 1 year $ 1.5 million. How are all these RP's getting crazy deal and Wood only gets that. Weird. I know he turned down more money from the White Sox but still.

      The outfield isn't really huge. If you compare the dimensions to other parks I think it's fairly average. It's the foul territory and the night air that make it a pitchers park.

        He has had his issues the last two years, but given the contracts handed out this offseason he still should have gotten like 2 years/$6 million.

          Yeah that's what I was thinking. You have guys like Guerrier, Crain, and your boy getting outrageous deals so it was suprising to see Wood get so little.

            Yankees should have re-signed him and hoped him and Prior could re-kindle some magic.

              Prior is done, no thoughts of him ever doing anything again should be had.

                I'm pretty sure the Cubs got a bit of the "hometeam" discount on that one... I think he just loves the Cubs organization, and Cubs fans love him.


                Sig by me... Hold the applause.

                • Red Sox signed Andrew Miller to a minor league deal. I think he makes it with some coaching. He's probably done as a starter at this point, but we're going to be trying the Daniel Bard experiment all over again with him.

                  Interestingly enough, we also signed Ryan Harvey, who we're converting to a pitcher.

                  • I'm excited about the Jenks signing. Especially since it was for only two years

                      Wood was ridiculously good as a Yankee last year. I'm shocked he went that cheap. When he is healthy, he is much better than any of these relievers.

                      • I honestly thought the Red Sox would take a look at him. Surprised they didn't for what he went for

                        • He clearly wanted to be a Cub.

                            Wood might have been told he'll have a chance to win the closers job in Chicago though. Might be why the Sox and Yankees didn't really consider him. Especially at that price.

                              There is no way he has a chance to win the closers job. Marmol is a fantastic closer. He is better than Kerry Wood in almost every facet.

                              Thanks to BoneKrusher Credit and Rep to him for the sig.

                              • Somebody clearly duped Wood is he thinks that. Marmol is an absolute stud.
