2007 Community Projections: Kerry Wood

Serendipity again -- I had planned all along to make Wood the last in the community projection series (he'll be the sixteenth player we project); as it turns out, today is also a day on which he'll pitch, his second appearance of the spring.

Here's hoping it'll turn out just as well as the first.

IP 75
H 59
W 5
L 4
BB 30
SO 88
SV 4
ERA 2.32
WHIP 1.187

As noted above, this is the last in the projection series; I'll post all the final projections sometime over the weekend or early next week.
