Pitcher KERRY WOOD is denying a report by CBS RADIO Sports WSCR-A (670 THE SCORE)/CHICAGO that the CHICAGO CUBS included a provision in his latest contract that he will join the team's broadcast crew after his playing days are over. The CHICAGO TRIBUNE quotes WOOD as saying that the reports are "completely untrue. I have no interest in broadcasting when my playing days are over. That has never been something that I saw myself doing."
The CUBS are still seeking a replacement for the late RON SANTO as PAT HUGHES' radio analyst on TRIBUNE Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO, but WOOD is still an active player. WOOD rejoined the CUBS on DECEMBER 17th with a one-year, $1.5 million contract.
