With Joba Chamberlain on the shelf for the next 10-14 months, one candidate that has popped up prominently for some much needed bullpen help is a familiar face from last season, one Mr. Kerry Lee Wood. On the surface, it seems to make sense. The Cubs are obviously going nowhere this [...]
ETA, 3:20pm. As I noted in the comments, news recently broke that Jenks will be signing with the Red Sox, for less than I expected — two years, $12 million. However, the below analysis still stands; only now Boston will get [...]
ETA, Thursday, December 16. News broke a day after this was posted that Wood is close to signing with the Cubs; however, the Soriano component still holds, at least for the time being.

We looked at the Yankee savers and drainers on the offensive side of things yesterday, so today, let’s look at the pitching side of things. Again, we’ll go top 9 guys in fWAR order.
1. CC Sabathia, 5.1 fWAR worth $20.4MM. Salary: $23MM. Value: -$2.6MM
2. Phil Hughes, 2.4 fWAR worth $9.5MM. Salary: [...]
In the aftermath of a game in which Andy Pettitte, Lance Berkman and Curtis Granderson have rightly been receiving the majority of the acclaim, I wanted to take a moment to give Kerry Wood some highly deserving props.
Brian Cashman acquired Wood at the trade [...]
OK Orlando, here comes a fastball. Ready? Strike three. Photo courtesy of daylife.com
Back in July the Yankees and the Rays both acquired bullpen arms to prepare for the stretch run. At the time, I was torn between which team got the better reliever. In my piece Wood vs. [...]
