Kerry Wood is bringing sexy back – Not only has he lost over 30 pounds, but he can also throw a baseball. After months of throwing towels, Wood was back to throwing hard round objects. According to Lou Piniella “If I were Kerry Wood, I’d be very pleased with the way I threw. He looked nice and comfortable out there. He threw the ball nice and easy. [For the] first time out on the mound, [it was] very encouraging. He had some life, threw some real nice breaking pitches. I’m sure he was probably a little nervous going out there first time out. I’m not talking about [first time] throwing batting practice but getting through the 25 pitches he threw. It was really encouraging.”

Dice K dazzles in his debut – “Matsuzaka threw his first 20 pitches from the stretch position and the next 20 from a full windup. He followed that with one pitchout to each side of the plate and then one pitch to the outside of both sides with Varitek in a crouch. His fastball sped up as the session progressed. Of his 44 pitches, 20 were breaking balls.” ~

I’m going to be announcing a couple of new additions to the staff this week as well as writing a non cub related post on the state of the Illinois Basketball team. Close your eyes if you don’t want to see non Cubs stuff. Enjoy your Sunday.
