MESA, Ariz. -- Chicago Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood was scratched from his start on Thursday because of tightness in his lower back.
Thursday would've been Wood's first Cactus League start since March 9. He came out of that game with tightness in his right shoulder, and had been throwing in simulated games. If Wood is all right on Friday, he will throw a simulated game.

"He didn't sleep well," Cubs manager Dusty Baker said Thursday about Wood. "His back is real tight so we decided not to take a chance. It's not his arm, it's his back, which he has trouble with every once in a while." ... p&c_id=mlb

I don't really know what to think with the Wood and Prior situation. I keep hoping they'll be back by mid April like the Cubs say but I'm not sure how well that's going to go.

Man, the Cubs either over, over, over, overly cautious with those guys or they really are just injury prone to the max.

I really should have gotten Carlos Zambrano in one of my leagues...I think he's going to be a super-stud in lieu of these broken down guys. :*)

Might be a blessing in disguise since Dusty said before this latest injury that he didn't know how long Wood would go in his start. Really amazing that a Major League manager hasn't learned his lesson. I guess more amazing is that the entire front office doesn't give crap about their young starters. Really a sad organization to say the least. They deserve this drought.
