"Remember how quickly Gagne's minor knee problem turned into a major elbow problem in 05? "
I think it was his ankle actually. Well the reason why the Cubs want Wood to have surgery now is they don't want it to become a bigger problem.
Ahhh...this is the Cubs management, aka, the biggest bunch of liars in MLB today, we are talking about. Prior and his mystery ailments. Wood and his mystery ailments...yada yada yada. Oh its a minor tweak...out a month+. If this was so innocent, why they not do it in December? Why wait until ST? Even if he is back in May, why bother with him in fantasy now?
He was on my avoid list already, but was still worth a round 24 flier. Now I would not touch this guy other than to fill an empty DL slot once the season starts. Total waste.
I would not waste a round 15 or 16 pick on him. Guys like JD Drew can and often do slip that far...far far far better investments.
Guys like Dye and Wilkerson and Lane can be had there as well...also far better investments...and they actually can play.
