Recently retired Kerry Wood was at Wrigley Field on Sunday when the Cubs held a ceremony to honor his accomplishments with the team, and according to Sahadev Sharma of ESPNChicago, Wood wants to be back with the team, although not as a player. “We've kicked some ideas around, (I've) met with and talked to Theo [Epstein] about it,” said Wood about a possible role with the organization. “We're all kinda on the same page and I'm sure we'll get something done soon and work out all the details. (I) definitely want to be around and definitely want to be involved. In what aspect, we'll figure that out probably this winter.” Woods also pointed out that he'll be with the team during Spring Training and Cubs Convention in the future. The right hander “emphasized that he wanted to be a part of the team some way,” although he doesn't want to be a General Manager. The 35-year old Wood played fourteen seasons in the Majors and retired with a 86-75 record, a 3.67 ERA, 1.0 HR/9, 4.3 BB/9, 10.3 SO/9 and 63 saves in 446 games, 178 starts with the Cubs, Indians and Yankees.
