Cubs about to lock up Kerry Wood 

Reports out of Arizona indicate that the Chicago Cubs and Kerry Wood are close to completing a multiyear deal.

Wood is available for free agency after the 2004 season, and there was some speculation that he would be high on the Rangers' list of free agent targets, particularly since he went to high school in the Metroplex. However, his family has since moved away, and Wood appears to have few ties to the area left.

Which is just as well...Kerry Wood is one of those players who has an ace reputation without putting up ace numbers. He throws a ton of pitches, has had arm problems in the past, and has been ridden hard by Dusty Baker...I don't see him aging well...
