Wood’s Locker will not be used in 2009

According to a report from Paul Sullivan, the Cubs will leave Kerry Wood’s corner locker at Wrigley Field vacant for the 2009 season.

Tom “Otis” Heilman, the Cubs’ clubhouse man, made the decision out of respect for Kerry Wood’s career with the Cubs.

Kerry Wood will always be a Cub, regardless of the logo on the front of his jersey.

Here is his farewell to the Faithful that ran in the Chicago Tribune and in the Chicago Sun-Times on the final day of the convention in January.

Stay Classy Otis!

Quote of the Day

"People ask me a lot about the values I got from playing for the Cubs for so many years. The value I got out of it was patience. A lot of people these days are not very patient." - Ernie Banks
