If the trade for Florida Marlins closer Kevin Gregg were not enough of a sign, the Chicago Tribune reports that Cubs GM Jim Hendry says the Cubs and Kerry Wood are parting ways.
Although I was ok with Kerry leaving. I CERTAINLY expected an upgrade at the closer spot and not a downgrade. I'm hoping that Gregg was acquired to go to the Padres in the trade for Peavy, although he was probably acquired as insurance if Marmol is not ready for the job.
Time will tell......In any event thanks for the memories Kerry. Your rookie year and the 20 strikeout game will never be forgotten!
