Why do Cubs fan even care about this….and other notes

From the Trib….

In his first rehab outing since being shut down in spring training with shoulder tendinitis, Kerry Wood struck out the three batters he faced Saturday in a Rookie League game in Arizona. The Cubs did not disclose Wood’s velocity, but Cubs general manager Jim Hendry was pleased with the progress Wood is making. No timetable is set, but the Cubs are hoping Wood will be ready to return in about three weeks after a minor-league rehab stint once his arm is ready for extended use.

Thank Heaven for the Braves:

He has hit .200 with one homer in 50 at-bats this season, but the Braves believe 48-year-old Julio Franco might be able to help them return to the playoffs. The oldest player in baseball was designated for assignment Thursday by the Mets, and the Braves will consider making an offer.

From Peter Abraham

They’re desperately trying to trade him[Kyle Farnsworth] and Torre was not going to say something to the media that could hurt those chances. This seems like the case to me and several people around baseball have told me Farnsworth is readily available.
