Kerry Wood's injury woes continue:

The Chicago Cubs pitcher is not expected to throw off the mound for a few days after he slipped this week getting out of a hot tub at home. Wood landed on his stomach and chest. [Link]

Let the simultaneous laughter, head-scratching and crying begin.

This would have never happened on Dusty's watch ...

At least Wood isn't expect to miss more than a few days. If that had been Carl Pavano instead, the Yanks would have immediately placed him on the 60-day DL and announced an expected return after the All Star Break.

This is significantly less important than it would have been in previous years. Wood's potential contribution to the club is unknown, so it's not like they were counting on him for specific numbers. It's really no big deal.

I once wrenched my arm so badly I couldn't reach above my shoulder for three months . . . while lying in bed. I'm waiting for Kerry Wood to do this, too.
