His BABIP was ridiculously low at .220, he had plantar fascitis, he signed for one year with half the $$ deferred and he isn't Derrek Lee or James Loney.  I'm happy with this deal.

I think I'd take the "Well, at least they're doing something" stance.    If he sucks, you can say "He's still better than Soriano" and, if he hits, you can say "OH YEAH!! TOLD YA!!!!"

They could have just pocketed the 10M and sold you some "Can't Miss" prospect that does miss.

I don't expect much out of this team for 2011; if Pena tanks and it leads to Hendry's firing, win-win.

That's the spirit!!!!

The thing I like is, they only spent money and didn't give up any players.  Somebody has to play 1B and there is literally nobody in the system capable of stepping in.

Unfortunately it's the Cubs fan's way.

I don't think its too bad. $10mil seems a bit high, but he'll rebound. 100 walks and 37HRs. A lot like Adam Dunn.

Welcome home, Kerry. 
You might not get that ring with the Cubs or make much of a difference on the crappy team that will be the 2011 Cubs - but it's sure fun to have you back.

And turning down the White Sox offer of more money and years, saying you could never put on a White Sox uniform.

I know he's not all that great, but he's one of my alltime favorite Cubs!! **** YES!!!

YAY!! Cubs fill a hole on their DL!

You'll be laughing out the other side of your BOSTON hat when he wins the simulated Cy Young Award, forg.

He needs to grow that goatee back... kinda looks like a ***** without it.

For the record, re-signing Wood is a reason the Cubs suck.   They have many other needs but bringing Wood back will make the fans happy.
