TRAVIS WOOD RUMORS & GOSSIP

Cubs 2, Royals 1 (5/31/15)

(Now with correct score!) OSS: The wind was the true winner of this game. Three up: 1. The wind was certainly helping all the pitchers today, but members of the Cubs pen not named Travis Wood came through today. Wood aside, they pitched 5 1/3 innings of shutout ball, allowing just one hit, two walks, and striking out seven. Grimm had the best performance, striking out three out of...

Travis Wood Being Moved To Cubs Bullpen

On Saturday afternoon, Travis Wood earned his first career save by throwing a perfect ninth inning to close out the Chicago Cubs‘ sixth straight win. After having the bullpen taxed the previous day, it was initially thought that Wood was just being asked to save the bullpen and provide a day of relief.  On Sunday, however, there is speculation that Wood may now be in the bullpen...

Red Hot Cubs Make a Big Rotation Change

The Chicago Cubs have won six straight games, are perfect on their current homestand, and are getting contributions from everyone on the roster. Well, besides Travis Wood… In the Cubs 4-1 win against division rival, the Pittsburgh Pirates on Saturday, manager Joe Maddon did something a little puzzling. He brought struggling starter Travis Wood in to close out the game. While some...

Chicago Cubs: Pitching woes continue

Believed to be a strength heading into this season, the Chicago Cubs bullpen and backend of the starting rotation has been disappointing as of late. After Sunday’s loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, the Cubs are back at .500 for the first time since 2-2 on April 11th. The bullpen didn’t start the season poorly, but a few injuries here and there, and the regression and underperforming...

“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...

Chicago Cubs: Who is the real Travis Wood?

Going into the 2013 season, the Chicago Cubs were hoping that Travis Wood would have a bounce back season after struggling some in his first season with the Cubs. Bounce back season he did have as he pitched to a 3.11 ERA and 1.145 WHIP while earning his first career All-Star appearance. The season that Wood had last year led for optimism heading into this season, but this year has...

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...
