    And I've "seen" Mike Hampton for too long and too much money, so we're even. :P

    Come to think of it, I don't like to read flowery language in sports sections either. I save that for the baseball preview magazines, and there are a lot of those.

    Yeah, he does like to play modern day sports writer. I haven't read but about a hand full of Woody Paige articles since 1980 for that very reason.

    MESA, Ariz. (AP)—Barring a setback, Kerry Wood probably will become the Chicago Cubs’ closer within the next two days. It was easy to see why on Saturday.

    Wood pitched a dominant seventh inning, and other Cubs relievers struggled.

    That should clear that rumor up for a while at least. Players cannot help the fact if they are injury prone.

    Lets not get to carried away with false information until Wood is reevaluated today.


    MESA, Ariz. (AP) -Chicago's Kerry Wood missed a one-inning relief appearance Wednesday because of lower back spasms, putting the competition for the Cubs' closer job on hold.
    The development was "a little bit of a setback, but nothing, nothing serious," manager Lou Piniella said.

    Wood, a former starter who has suffered shoulder injuries the past few seasons, had the inside track for the job over Bob Howry and Carlos Marmol. He was scheduled to pitch one-inning stints back-to-back for the first time this spring against the Oakland A's Wednesday and the Colorado Rockies on Thursday.

    Wood, who has also experienced back spasms in past years, underwent treatment and will be reevaluated Thursday.
