Does anyone know why Wood was yanked after 3 IP? The strangest thing is that he got to hit, then got yanked immediately after. Anyone watching the game or have any idae what the deal was? Normally he would be allowed to pitch through only 3 runs in 3 IP.

No idea, although I was flipping through the Cubs game and I was hearing something about the Cubs wanting to give Remlinger more time on the mound for some reason.

This sounds more to me like Dusty is just being cautious.

[url=http://chicagosports.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseball/cubs/cs-050720cubsgamer,1,801600.story?coll=cs-cubs-headlines] "The first inning, I thought he had pretty good stuff," catcher Michael Barrett said of Wood. "I just thought he needed some time to get loose, get going. Some power pitchers are like that, and he's been like that the last couple games. Down the stretch, three through six, he's been pretty powerful in terms of velocity and stuff. And today, he had trouble getting to that point, trouble getting loose. All I could tell is that he wasn't as crisp compared to the last two starts that I had him, I don't know if that radar gun is right in left-center … some of the pitches he threw according to that gun were 87 to 91 (m.p.h.). A couple times he hit 95. But it just wasn't the same consistent fastball, the same consistent life we saw the two previous starts."

Wood got a visit from assistant athletic trainer Ed Halbur after the Griffey homer, but he stayed in to retire the next two batters.

When Wood came to the dugout after the third inning, he began shaking his right arm, according to Baker. "I knew we better get him out of there, He said it just didn't feel right. He warmed up great, Then in that one inning, he started feeling something. He wanted to stay in the game, certainly. Whether he was fine or not, that's a question. We don't want this to develop into anything real significant."

"Obviously, we looked and saw his velocity was a little bit down tonight from what it had been in the past," head trainer Mark O'Neal said. "When Ed went out there with Larry, Kerry denied symptoms. When he came in he was telling us that he was a little tight and we just didn't want to take any chances. So we pulled him from the game.

Wood threw 66 pitches, 41 for strikes. He gave up solo homers in each of his innings to Felipe Lopez, Adam Dunn and Ken Griffey Jr. respectively.

Doesn't sound at all serious. I don't anticipate him missing his next start. Damn you Kerry Wood, why did you have to fall so far in our draft that I HAD to take you...Damn you.

It may not seem serious, but what is serious is the fact Kerry Wood continually has arm and shoulder injuries that force him to leave games prematurely. Wood's injury history is ominous, especially the reoccurring shoulder stiffness that has plagued him this season.

As a Runny Nose is to a Cold . . . Reoccurring Shoulder Stiffness is to a Torn Labrum?

Kerry Wood is Darren Driefort Redux?

....... anddddddd Wood will miss at least 1 start. Come on, who honestly didn't expect it this time?

News
Cubs hurler Kerry Wood will miss at least one start after getting a cortisone shot in his aching right shoulder Thursday, reports the Associated Press. Wood was removed from Wednesday's start after only three innings because of pain in his shoulder. Shoulder problems landed Wood on the disabled list earlier this season. "It's frustrating, especially with the amount of time I've missed," Wood was quoted as saying. "So we got the shot, went with a little more aggressive treatment this time. We'll see if that will take care of it."
