At Ryan Dempster’s charity even on Friday, Wood told the Chicago Tribune that there was a chance he could return to Chicago.
“There has been a lot of interest, but at this stage of my career it has to be the right fit for my family,” Wood said. “We are raising our kids and making our permanent home in Chicago, so we’ll see what happens.”
And about actually coming back to play for the Cubs?
“Nothing is impossible. We’ll see how things play out.”
It’s no secret that Wood could get more from another team than the Cubs would be able (willing?) to afford. It’s also likely that Wood could find a closing job somewhere. But at least he’s saying there’s a chance.
