Kerry Wood’s journey from near retirement to the ALCS

Warning: Track Is Dangerous

Kerry Wood has been nothing short of a godsend for the Yankees since being acquired at the trade deadline. He’s chewed up high-leverage innings down the stretch and tossed up scoreless inning after scoreless inning, even if the process wasn’t always pretty. We all know about Wood’s lengthy injury history, one that includes 14 trips to the disabled list and no fewer than three arm surgeries, but did you know he was once hours from retirement in 2007? I sure didn’t, but Brian Costa covered that very topic today. I don’t want to ruin the surprise of how it all happened, so make sure you head over and check it out. Great stuff.

    If girardi starts kerry wood for game 7 he will pitch a complete game shutout with 15K and 2 BB.

    Phil Hughes tonight: 5 IP 4 ER with 3 BB AND 3 Ks. Yankees win 7-4.

    Cliff Lee will be roughed up early in game 7. Yankees win 8-4.

      I’ll take it.

      How would the Rangers score 4 if Wood pitches a shutout. Not that I’m complaining.

        girardi will call on pettitte, not wood… unfortunately…

    Costa’s story was a great one. Excellent insight in to his situation the past few years that makes me root for him more.
