Kerry Wood has fans? I mean, outside of the hospital?
I know what you mean, but he actually has to come back and stay healthy to take the job. It just won't happen, IMO.
His health allowing of course. But yes, Wood is still a big enough name for the Cubs fans to be demanding a chance for him at closer, especially if Dempster struggles, which is a likely scenario. IMO, Wood doesn't have to pitch particularly well to take the job, he just has to not be injured, which is a task in itself for Wood though.
