Nice to beat out the Tigers also WINTER MEETINGS BITS BY PHIL ROGERS Former Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood agrees to deal with Cleveland Indians Tribune reporter Paul Sullivan contributed. December 10, 2008 LAS VEGAS — With two teams to pick from in the American League Central, Kerry Wood appears to have rejected overtures from Detroit to take a deal with Cleveland. Wood's decision to sign with the Indians followed closely Francisco Rodriguez's agreement with the New York Mets. Rodriguez's three-year deal, which is expected to be announced after he passes a physical, narrowed down Wood's choices. The deal is believed to be two years with a vesting option for a third. Money terms remain unclear. Wood fills a hole Cleveland has had at the back of its bullpen since the breakdown of Joe Borowski, a former teammate of Wood's with the Cubs. It allows Jensen Lewis to remain in a set-up role. http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/baseb...0,2321698.story Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
