Travis Wood: Chicago Cubs potential “Loogy”

    Overshadowed by RH Edwin Jackson’s disastrous two-year stint in the Cubs’ rotation and albatross contract was the severe regression of LH starter Travis Wood this season.

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...
