    Kerry Wood Hurt, Already

    MESA, Ariz. -- Oft-injured Kerry Wood is out again -- this time because of a flub in a hot tub.

    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.

    "It was just a little spill," Wood said Thursday. "I didn't think anything of it. Nothing's wrong. It's just going to be a few extra days. My arm feels great. My body feels good."

    Wood said he probably would not have thrown off the mound until Friday had he not gotten hurt. He participated in most drills on Thursday when pitchers and catchers worked out for the first time.

    Bothered by an injured right shoulder the past three seasons, Wood is being converted to a reliever after being limited to four starts last year.

    He should be put in a bubble.
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    It's a close race between him and Griffey.

    A race that will never truly be over until one of them has to drag their arm to the finish line while avoiding stubbing their toe, stomach cramps and neck stiffness and the other will have to have both legs reattached to finish.

    At least Griffey had a good run and his bad luck started in his 30's.

    Wood has been doomed from near the beginning.

    geez, these home related incidents such as Griffey and now Wood are often hilarious. Joe Wilkins who caught at Ohio State, once had to sit out for a couple of weeks after he pinched a nerve in his neck gelling his hair.

    This means in a couple days, Woods will be in ICU.

    Different sport, but Grant Hill ranks right up there with the both of them too.

    It's another sign of spring, first then groundhogs sees his shadow, then Wood or Prior get hurt.
