Kerry Wood retiring


Recommended Posts

Surprising...He's just 34 right now.




Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago reports that Kerry Wood will announce his retirement Friday.

Wood said at the end of last season that he was either going to pitch for the Cubs in 2012 or retire, but this still comes as a surprise. He's been woeful so far this season, posting an 8.64 ERA, 2.28 WHIP and 5/11 K/BB ratio over 8 1/3 innings, but the right-hander will turn just 35 next month. It's not clear if the oft-injured right-hander is dealing with something physically or if he's just decided to call it quits. He'll end his career with an 86-75 record, 63 saves, a 3.67 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 1,581 strikeouts over 1,379 2/3 innings across 14 seasons.

Cubs fans treating Kerry Wood like he's Bob Gibson or Sandy Koufax, but that's why they're the Cubs.


Maybe it's because the Sammy Sosa ties went sour and the Cubs fans were desperate to anoint a new franchise player. Sosa and Wood are probably their biggest franchise players since Ryne Sandberg.
