Things we never saw coming

  • Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood, who was on the disabled list three times last year and missed the 1999 season after elbow surgery, is back on the DL because of a partial tear in his right rotator cuff. Surgery might be in order. In the least he's out a month. If he's cut, again, he's gone for the season. Staff ace going down with such an injury means just one thing in Chicago, of course - Cubs manager Dusty Baker's IQ just dropped, again.
  • Jose Canseco is writing yet another tell-all about steroid use in Major League Baseball, vowing to name more names in his effort to convince baseball fans that its Baseball's Club Medicine Cabinet had more than one member. Oh, yeah, the guys he named in his last expose, Juiced, never did sue for libel. What's up with that, Mark McGwire, Rafael Palmeiro and Co.?
  • Manny Ramirez who, on Friday, bowed out of the upcoming All-star game because of a sore knee, doubled twice, hit a single and drew a walk in the Boston Red Sox win over the Chicago White Sox Saturday.
