If this means we'll be having a sort of Interference funeral for B. Wood, I want Hewson to write the eulogy.

I want the Red Sox to sign him to a minor league contract just to see what kind of reaction we'd get from pubcrawler.

I might be too overcome with emotion to handle the eulogy...



...oh and for old time's sake...

pub crawler wouldn't :facepalm:, but he wouldn't approve of this trade because pubster knows that -- and I'll speak (type) in the 3rd person here -- BWood needs to go to a low-pressure environment and get consistent reps. Boston or New York would = FAIL.

This is from Tim Dierkes at mlbtraderumors and it echoes my thoughts exactly:

"I'd like to see a non-contending team install Wood as the starting shortstop and just let him rip for 500 plate appearances. That plan might be unfair to players who don't have the "advantage" of being out of options. But the Pirates might as well try him over Ronny Cedeno."

Brandon would LOVE to go the Pirates or a similarly sucky team, as long as the manager plays him every day.

How about the Gary SouthShore RailCats of the American Association of Independent Professional Baseball?

From the OC Register:

Wood, 26, said he felt the weight of expectations after being hailed as the team's future star for years before he got his big-league opportunity. "I think I put too much pressure on myself, wanting to put up Rookie-of-the-Year numbers," he said. "There was a lot of talk from 2007 to 2010. ... I panicked a little bit and tried to prove it all right."

- Sports - The Orange County Register


Brandon Wood needs to go play for a small market team and clear his head.

You mock, but there will be substantial interest in BWood by other teams over the next 10 days.

So for five years that's his excuse? I mean, you're playing in the pros, every one faces that kind of pressure. If he can't handle it that's not exactly the Angels fault.

I wonder if B Wood would have better numbers than Jeter.

Extra Innings in Chicago, and game 2 set to start in one hour and 20 minutes. I wonder which team is going to crack first.

This Marlins team is so much fun to [not] watch!

Ricky Nolasco is doing awesome, and they lit up Charlie Morton!

Incredibly odd to watch Hanley play great defense the past few games with a dead bat.
