According to Bruce Levine of ESPN Chicago, Kerry Wood will announce his retirement today. Since the story was originally broken (apparently by Peggy Kuczinski on a message board soewhere) we still have no confirmation from the Cubs or Kerry. The current rumor is that Kerry planned to pitch today and retire tomorrow. Can’t blame the guy for wanting one more day in the sun at Wrigley.
Kerry will be available today to pitch out of the pen. More news on this as we get it.
