Kerry Wood Leaves game with Shoulder Injury

Holy smokes you guys are down on Kerry. I am the biggest Wood critic, having owned him for the last 4 years in my keeper league. I can't stand him and I will probably keep him again just so that I can bitch him out but this is really nothing.

This is what happens when 9 ST games get rained out and reporters have nothing better to do I guess.

Pitchers have slight strains all the time. Since it's Wood, we all fear the worst. Hopefully this isn't that big of a deal.

Keep in mind, this injury is most likely career ending!

Just thought I'd jump on the bandwagon. :)

not good :-t

I Drafted this guy to be my ace last year and he was out for most of the season, luckily I had Santana. This guy is just too damn imjury prone. I am putting him on my do not draft list.

For what it's worth, this is an update from rotoworld.com:

Kerry Wood said he felt fine after the game today. He told Cubs trainers he experienced only tightness -- no pain -- in his shoulder.
''I'm not concerned about this,'' Wood said. ''With what's gone on in the past, and the injuries we had last year, it's not something you want to take a chance with this year. It's a smarter decision [to come out] I think than to stay out there and get through some tightness and have something happen [where] I can't throw tomorrow. I'll stay on my same schedule and go from there.'' We're concerned, but we'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now.

Looks like he is fine.

The latest, from rotoworld.com

Kerry Wood had an MRI on his right shoulder and has been sent back to Chicago for an examination.
The Cubs are already prepared for him to miss one start. ''After what happened last year, this is just precautionary,'' manager Dusty Baker said. ''It was just a matter of him going back and seeing our team doctor. Right now, it's nothing. We just decided to do this for a precautionary sake.'' The more they say, the less we believe it's nothing.

Let's hope this is just a precaution. I can't wait to hear that it's nothing serious.
