White Sox make 2-year offer to RHRP Kerry Wood? [UPDATE #3]

Kaplan & Mitchell @ CT:

We hear from very good baseball sources that the White Sox have made a two-year offer to free agent pitcher Kerry Wood.

Wood played 10 years with the Cubs and pitched last season for the Yankees, who reportedly are interested in bringing him back.

Wood has said he does not want to play on the South Side, so this could be interesting.

Wood is a Type-B free agent but he was not offered arbitration.

I wonder if/how the Jesse Crain signing changes the Sox offer.

UPDATE: Now the 3rd paragraph reads:

Wood has said he does not want to play on the South Side, so it’s probably moot for him because the offer likely will evaporate if the club signs the Twins’ Jesse Crain as expected.

UPDATE #2: Now Cowley tweets:

Don’t look now, but Cowley might have been wrong for ripping on the Tribsters – K. Wood indeed might also be on his way said a source.

UPDATE #3: Maybe not says Cowley’s latest tweet:

Talks with Kid K are back and forth – source said sounded good for a bit, but not so good now. KW is using Jedi mind tricks as we speak.

UPDATE #4: Seems like Wood is going to the other team in Chicago.

      • I highly doubt wood will sign with us. he still thinks of the sox as rivals.

        • yeah,

          and the crain signing makes it even less probable…

          • regardless, with crain in the pen, the team is almost perfect in my mind. less holes if any then the tigers and I don’t really understand what the twins are doing. sox are going to run away with the division, you agree?

            • I’m nervous man!

              I agree the Sox have improved and the Twins are worse off, but they call up some no-name yahoos and keep winning. It’s like a bad dream…

              • I know it’s rediculous. nick punto is always the worst. I heard they are tring to get some Japanese infielder I’m sure he’ll bat well over .500 against the sox LOL but I think that they will be a winning team next year, but your right, they always find a way.

                • yeah, they keep finding a way and I keep pulling my hair when the Sox play them

                  and Ozzie better stop with all the Twin praising, like all the unbelievable BS they pull isn’t enough…

            • Yeah the Twins are having a bad offseason but you have to remember that they played all of last season without Nathan and most of the second half without Morneau.
