Where is Kerry Wood taken these days?

Postby StudentOfTheGame » Fri Feb 17, 2006 1:41 pm

Just read that he is still recovering from shoulder surgery but does expect to begin throwing fairly soon....I'm one that believes that IF healthy, he can be the most dominant power pitcher in the NL. His stuff is outstanding. Easily a 10K per 9 INN guy when on his game....Before I draft later today, I was just wondering where should i expect him to fall...My guess would be rounds 8-10. If that is the case, I'll be targeting him for sure...
While you're at it, feel free to post your projections for him this season....

Mine would be something like: 23 GS/140 IP/12W/3.25 ERA/1.20 WHIP/155 Ks

117 IP 9.5 k/9 8W 4.04 ERA 1.308 WHIP. You're welcome to Kerry. I won't be taking a chance on him until he has a healthy year.

Im staying far away from Wood.. He's sooo injury prone and I feel may be lucky to get 100-120 inning in tops..

my approach to high-potential stars with major question marks is 15-17th round. if they're there, they're worth the risk.

No sooner than 200 overall...if then. While taking a chance on an injured vet is fine, Wood may be the most risky pick of the usual walking wounded suspects. And you can not trust the Cubs to tell the truth about anything wrt injuries. They are habitual liars in the Duquette mold where "minor" problems keep guys out for months.

Caveat Emptor.

It really seems like Kerry Wood is just destined to go down with injury year after year after back to back seasons of less than 150 IP....But the guy is only 28 years old, and he pitched 213 Innings and 211 innings in 2002 and 2003 respectivly.....

I heard he's going to definately start 30 games this year. ;-7 Hendry needs to wake up. :-t He's nothing more than a late, late, late round flier IMO. 20K days are long, long over.

Watch, we jinxed it, now he'll be Carpenter of 2006 ;-D

He got picked in the 12th round of my 12-teamer...I don't know if that was a good idea though.

Just cause we here things don't mean that’s actually going to happen. I like Wood and I would like to maybe draft him in my keeper league. The injury prone pitcher he is though, I just don’t know if I really want to gamble on Wood. Don’t get me wrong he will have a break-out year; I highly doubt this is the season for that though. :-/

Not much here but he is NOT listed in the Cubs rotation.

He is listed as a reliever.
