Cubs to Kerry Wood: Don't let the Door hit 'ya Where the Good Lord Split 'ya

(That's me on the left, by the way. Just kidding. A man can dream though, can't he?)

By: T.R. Slyder,

This was one of those "Yeah but still..." baseball moves. Wood was still good, but probably not a savvy baseball investment. When I heard he was traded, I had this argument with myself:

T.R.'s Heart: What? Kerry was the longest-tenured Cub!! He was a good closer! We can't just get rid of him!

T.R.'s Brain: Yeah, but he wasn't worth the price, and he'd want a few years more than he'd be worth. We can't just keep him on the payroll because he had 20 strikeouts in 1998 and is a good guy.

T.R.'s Heart: Yeah but still....

-End Scene-

Now the longest-tenured Cub? Carlos Zambrano with 8 years. Next is Aramis Ramirez with 5 and a half years.

Kerry was the first Cub to play in three different playoff series with the Cubs since, like the 40's or something. Maybe even before. I half-assedly tried to find it on Google, but gave up. I heard that at the beginning of this playoffs. He and his wife were active in the Chicago community as well. Farewell Kerry.
