Kerry WoodCubs reliever Kerry Wood had options this offseason as a free agent, but chose the Cubs for a bargain-basement deal.

Wood, 34, is one of the few movable pieces for the Cubs, but the right-hander said he doesn't want to go anywhere.

"I think it would have to be great for both," Wood told the Daily Herald's Bruce Miles, referring to himself and the Cubs. "Obviously, [wife] Sarah and I will talk about it. We have a little bit. It would have to be ideal for both. It would have to be something that is definitely going to help this organization down the road and something that's going to fit for us, which is, right now, here. I know the talk's going to come. I've already been hearing it. So we can address it now. I doubt it. We're committed here. We've got an event in September. So I'll just leave it at that. I don't see it. I don't see it happening."

Wood signed a one-year, $1.5 million deal before the season and talked about how he wanted to finish his career as a Cub. This season he's appeared in 24 games,  going 1-3 with a 2.25 ERA, striking out 21 and walking 10 in 24 innings.

Throw back player

Hoe great it is to see a gentleman like Kerry playing in today's it's all about me players. zI wish Kerry could have stayed healthy and listened to Steve Stone about how his pitching motion was going to be his down fall. Any way, it's good to see Kerry back home.
