For the first time in more than a year, the Chicago Cubs finally won a game in Milwaukee.
Wood needs to be careful if he wants his post-career vision to be realized, and actual baseball is only a part of it.
Now it’s Kerry Wood’s turn to swear at a reporter.
Dan Uggla hit a tiebreaking two-run single in the eighth inning and the Atlanta Braves beat the Chicago Cubs 3-1 Tuesday night.
The Cubs activated Ryan Dempster and Kerry Wood from the disabled list Thursday and optioned Scott Maine and Randy Wells to Triple-A Iowa.
Which is the better performance, a perfect game or Kerry Wood’s 20 strikeout game against the Astros?
Kerry Wood was placed on the disabled list Friday morning and Scott Maine was called up from Triple-A Iowa.
On Sunday, the onetime wide receiver strung together a series of goose eggs on Easter to dazzle in his 2012 debut and make it appear as if that day has perhaps finally arrived.
Well so far the new Cubs regime looks a lot like the old one. More losses, and ugly ones at that. Yes, it’s only two games into a long season but it’s awfully deflating when the two losses have come the way they have, so far.
Carlos Marmol insists it’s too soon for him to be frustrated. Cubs fans sure are, though. Adam LaRoche homered and matched a career-high with four hits, and the Washington Nationals again rallied late against Kerry Wood and Marmol, scoring five runs in the eighth to beat the Chicago Cubs 7-4 on Saturday.
Cubs manager Dale Sveum will sit down with Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer Wednesday night and make the final roster decisions before the team breaks camp next week.
Travis Wood boosted his chances of earning a spot in the Chicago Cubs’ rotation, allowing one run while pitching into the third inning of a 5-1 win over the White Sox on Friday.
Rizzo was especially fun to watch as he put four straight over the wall including one over the 50-foot barrier in center that traveled an estimated 500 feet.
Should Kerry Wood’s Jersey Be Retired At Wrigley Field?
Kerry Wood was seriously considering signing with the White Sox and if it wasn’t for one last meeting with the Cubs, the reliever may have ended up on the South Side of town.
Amid the usual, goofy hokum of the annual Cubs Convention came the announcement of a proposed redesign of Wrigley Field’s right-field bleacher area.
Stop attending team fan conventions. They are the equivalent of a Justin Bieber concert, and you, convention-goer, are the screaming, crying, fainting tween girl.
The team made the announcement Friday at the Cubs Convention, the club’s annual fan festival. No contract details were provided.
tarlin Castro has been question by police regarding the alleged sex assault, and the fate of longtime pitcher Kerry Wood is still unknown.
The Cubs and reliever Kerry Wood are reportedly making progress toward a new one-year deal.
