Wood gets new 3 year deal

Postby Pogotheostrich » Fri Feb 27, 2004 2:51 pm

Associated Press
MESA, Ariz. -- Kerry Wood agreed Friday to a three-year contract with the Chicago Cubs, a deal that includes a mutual option for 2007.


The 26-year-old right-hander had agreed last month to a one-year deal worth $9.75 million. He would have been eligible for free agency after this season.


Wood made the NL All-Star team last year, going 14-11 with a 3.20 ERA in 32 starts. He struck out a major-league high 266 batters and held opponents to a .203 average.


In his fifth major league start in 1998, Wood struck out 20 Houston batters, tying the major league record for a nine-inning game.


He won two games in the division series against Atlanta last fall and was the losing pitcher in Game 7 of the NL championship series against Florida.


Wood had elbow ligament replacement surgery in 1999 and missed the entire season. He has a 59-41 career record, averaging 10.6 strikeouts per nine innings.


Sorry Mad. The Rangers will have to look elsewhere for some pitching.

Thank you.

Was getting sick of people saying Wood was heading to the Rangers. I think he'd prefer to win than go home. He can go home from October to February.....

So... that money the Rangers are saving in the A-rod trade is going to be spent on who now that he has signed? Wait, I think I see it disappearing into Hicks' pocket, where it will never see the light of day again. :~( .

Naw, he'll save it for a rainy A - namely Zito, Hudson or Mulder. :~(

Well, considering the recent track record of management saying that they are "committed" to someone (IE A-Rod and Jim Fassel off the top of my head) I wouldn't be surprised to see someone try to acquire him.

Hopefully not. The Cubs really got a shot this year. I'm pulling for them. ;D
