Offseason Target Idea #2: Kerry Wood

Joe Girardi's old battery mate in Chicago is a free agent, and likely looking for a one-year deal to prove he's still healthy. Towards the end of 2007, he was throwing in the hig 90's again and seemed to be getting the old effectiveness back. I didn't see him drop that old killer cuirveball that he had in his prime as much, but maybe that will come back with time.

Either way, Wood is a low-risk, high-reward type of guy, the same type of player Cashman loves to draft every year. Is a one year deal for $4M with a club option for a second too much to pay for a guy who just might be a flamethrower out of the bullpen?

Nah. I mean besides the fact that I want to punch the shit out of K-Rod's goggles, he'd be a bargain and wouldn't try to push Mo out of the closers spot so we can groom someone (Sanchez? Ohlendorf? Whelan? Horne? Marquez?) to take over someday

Also I never wanted a "Got Melk?" t-shirt but I might pick up a "Got Wood?" in honor of Shaun of the Dead
