I think it would be a great idea if Wood could handle it... I know a lot of times this year he has blown in the first inning before settling down in the 3rd inning and so that could be kind of a problem as a closer... also who would they bring in the rotation to replace him...
Not hugely familiar w/ the cubs farm, but I think most of their prospects are bats right now
I've heard tons of people suggest that on this site. My question to you is:
What on earth gives you any reason at all to believe that Wood will ever be able to pitch 3/4 times a week? Considering how short the timespan is for dominant relievers (with Rivera one obvious exception)....I'm not sure why anyone thinks it's easier on the arm than starting once a week.
Carlos gets all the attention for being a head case, but KW isn't exactly Mr. Calm and reasonable either. Only takes one bad call by the ump to get his head spinning and mouth spouting. Not what you need in a closer.
