Countdown to Disabled List

So the Cubs decided to give Kerry Wood the closer job, and I say fine to that -- he's probably not as good as Carlos Marmol, but there are some relievers that are probably dead that are better than last year's closer, Ryan "Dumpster" Dempster...

But then Cap'n Lou Alpinhead had to add insult before the inevitable injury with this.

Piniella, who sees "no reason why" Wood couldn't pitch three days in a row.
Um, Lou? Have you paid any attention to the career of Mr. Wood? He makes Dave Dravecky look durable. He has spent his conscious life ruining the dreams of Cub Fan, and you're looking to push his work rate into the danger zone.

Which either makes Lou an evil genius that's trying to get Wood killed, or he's drooling on his shirt and looking for the early meal. I'm going with the former, but he also seems to be trying to have Zambrano killed. If nothing else, you have to admire Lou's commitment to squandering pitching

Here's a tasty stat for you. Wood has been on the DL 11 times in his career, and he's not even 30.
