Surely I can't be the only one who had the above MK image run through my head upon hearing that Dusty Baker was going to call his ex-horse Kerry Wood to see "what's up." As you'll no doubt remember, Baker is the same manager that had Wood throw more than 120 pitches in five of his last six starts in 2003 (the sixth start was a 114-pitch effort) and is widely credited with helping derail Wood and Mark Prior's careers.
Even though the Reds would never be able to afford both Francisco Cordero and Wood in their pen, I still it's worth spending a post to warn Wood to stay away, lest we somehow end up seeing his severed spine — FATALITY! — on the mound of the GAB.
