A year after recovering from shoulder problems and moving to the bullpen, Kerry Wood agreed to a $4.2 million, one-year deal to return to the Chicago Cubs. And apparently, other clubs were interested in the papier-mache pitcher. We're talking multi-year offers here, people.
The 30-year-old righty may make an additional $3.45 million in performance bonuses, rounding out the hind-end of the bullpen.
So, Chicago is Wood's home, it's where he's pitched for his entire career, blah blah blah... what's important is the over/under on his return lasting 10 starts before he (inevitably) hurts himself. I'll take the under.
