Kerry Wood, who knew fired GM Jim Hendry for 17 years, hopes to stay with the Cubs, even with a new GM on the way.

"I've got to go out and pitch and get guys out, so if I'm doing that we can talk in the offseason about what I want to do as far as next year is concerned and make a decision," Wood told ESPN 1000. "But hopefully Chicago would like to have me back."

Wood, who signed a below-market deal for one year and $1.5 million to return to Chicago in what is believed to be a long-term arrangement in his playing and post-playing days, has a 3.24 ERA in 41 2/3 relief innings.

Wood also spoke about Hendry's firing, admitting he was surprised by it.

"That's part of the game," Wood said. "Jim was here for a long time. I knew him for almost 17 years. He did great work here and did a great job. That's just part of the game. It's time for him to move on. He's going to land on his feet and he's going to be doing this for a long time. He'll be fine. I'm not worried about Jim Hendry."

"I think the timing was more of a surprise than the decision. But again that's part of the business. It's not my place to ask why and all those questions. It is what it is. I feel bad for him and his family but he's going to bounce back and do the same job somewhere else and be successful."
