Kerry Woods appeal

Postby DieHardCubbie » Wed Aug 11, 2004 8:56 pm

From the Chicago Tribune

Kerry Wood and LaTroy Hawkins will finally get to explain their actions during appeal hearings for their respective suspensions Wednesday.

If both lose and a decision is handed down Thursday, both could miss the upcoming series against West Division-leading Los Angeles at Wrigley Field.

Wood is currently on schedule to pitch Saturday against the Dodgers. Manager Dusty Baker declined to say what contingency plans he has in case Hawkins and Wood both lose their appeals.

"I have to wait and see how it comes out first," he said. "It's hard to prepare for something that's not there yet. We hope it comes up positive."

The Cubs say they believe Wood can get his five-game suspension reduced by one game. In that case, they could re-arrange the rotation, as they did for Carlos Zambrano, instead of skipping a start. An off-day next Monday would help them get through it.


Kerry, Latroy and Zambrano owners might want to keep and eye on this...and make preparations to do something different Saturday... :-/

Thanks DHC I was wondering when they would ever hear Wood's appeal. He's had that thing since May.

What is it with me and Cubs getting suspended? I was at the Kerry Wood explosion and the Latroy Hawkins explosion, so maybe I should stop going to games... :,-(

Zambrano's suspension has already been "served."

Unless he has another one that I'm forgetting.

Nope...not another one... :-°

Just that there is a possibility that he gets moved up a day if Woods suspension is upheld.. :-)

So what is going on here? Is Kerry good to go next week? I have to set lineups by Monday morning. Any help would be appreciated.
