    Kerry Wood with the Reds 2007.

    If the Cubs buy out Kerry Wood at the end of the season should the Reds take a shot at him as a reliever?

    For the kind of money he'll likely command, no.

    If he comes cheap absolutely take a chance.

    With his injury history I don't think he'll be asking for that much.

    With all his injuries, I think it's too much of a gamble.

    He would ask for 3-5 million a season.....

    As a closer? Yes. I'd invest $3 to 5 million in him.

    He'll probably re-sign with the Cubs cause they would be foolish enough to give him what he'll ask for.

    As a reliever...he may survive.

    We already know as a starter he won't

    maybe we could get a wade miller 1 million dollar deal from him, if he pitches great if not, we eat the money, something this front office is not afraid to do

    Re: Kerry Wood with the Reds 2007.

    I wonder if theres any chance he would sign like a 1-2 million dollar contract with bonuses based on his performance?

    If you could get him for a reasonable price, then it would be worth it to take a chance. But if he wants to get paid like hes getting paid now, then its not worth it.

    Kerry Wood. Isn't he only able to pitch 10-12 innings a year?

    Perhaps we should sign Jeff Bagwell after he is officially dumped by the Astros. He could be our 'pinch-hitter only' guy.

    Im sure the yankees or red sox will at least match and probably beat any deal we would offer wood and I would say thats probably where wood wants to go. So our chances are zero.

    I'd take him as our closer.
