TRAVIS WOOD RUMORS & GOSSIP

Cubs 5, Reds 0 (4/15/15)

OSS: Jason Marquis did Jason Marquis things, Travis Wood looked like 2013 Travis Wood, and the Cubs are back in first place. Three up: 1. Anthony Rizzo hit his first homer of the year, an absolute bomb to right center into the teeth of the wind. The Cubs jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, which was nice to see after some of the high pressure games earlier this week...

Photo: New Orleans Saints Approve of Fan’s “Fleur-de-beard”

During the NFL’s offseason, it is not unusual for fans to get bored waiting for the new season to get started. So, why not grow a stellar beard (if you are guy), depicting your favorite team’s NFL logo? This guy is obviously a fan of the New Orleans Saints, as we can see by his wicked-awesome logo beard. My first attempt at a @Saints #WhoDat beard! Getting ready for the upcoming...

“Daily” Facepalm – Mocanda, Epstein, Wood Extension?

Yoan Mocanda ——-> Red Sox The Cuban defector goes to the Sox on a $30m deal. The Cubs continued to scout him despite being under the CBA signing limit penalty, hoping for the slim chance that he’d sign after July when their probation ends. The Red Sox burned their own signing bridges with the deal and are now due for the same penalty next year, as well as having to pay...

Cubs Need To Consider Trading Travis Wood

The sentiment in this is going to be wildly unpopular for two reasons: 1. Because of the trade that just happened, sending Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to Oakland; and 2. Because Travis Wood is a fan favorite…but the Cubs need to seriously consider trading Travis Wood before the deadline this year. Now that most of you are good and mad, let me explain why.  The first is that...

Is Travis Wood actually good?

After a great 2013 season and two dominant starts in 2014, is it time to believe in Wood? (Photo: Andy Lyons/Getty Images) Through 32 starts last season and two starts in 2014, Travis Wood has pitched 212.1 innings of 3.09 ERA ball. Detractors, like myself, cited his 3.89 FIP and 4.50 xFIP as reasons to believe his 2013 season was a mirage and figured that when Wood was finally cut...
