    He's had a tough career. Hopefully he doesn't have many regrets.

    When was the 20 strikeout game? '98? Fairly long career for the kid.

    You are correct it was May 6, 1998. It was only the 5th start of his career.

    Thought the Cubs were going to be set for years to come with Wood and Prior...... Well it is still just wait until next year.

    this is a severe "cool story bro" warning from the emergency weather broadcast system...

    I was his waiter once just after college during that season where he, Prior and Zambrano were an awesome rotation that nearly got them there. He seemed like a nice guy, he was having dinner with his mom.

    Not to mention Zambrano who was practically their ace toward the end of "that" year.

    Kerry is a good guy, and it has to be killing him. Best wishes for him and his foundation. I am sure he will be attached to the team or to the broadcasts in some way.

    Dusty Baker absolutely destroyed Wood's and Prior's careers pitching them like 200 innings very deep into ballgames.

    Re: Kerry Wood Retiring Today

    That's a shame. If there was a What Might Have Been Hall of Fame, the Wood/Prior/Zambrano rotation would be a first ballot inductee. Good luck to Kerry Wood whatever he decides to do next.

    Re: Kerry Wood Retiring Today

    How far have the great little Cubs fallen in the past decade? The Twins, Brewers, and Royals have caught up...

    If we could turn back time to the Cubs best seasons...

    A solid career for him though.
