Sosa, Wood, and the Boombox

The Chicago Tribune reports today that Kerry Wood says that he was not the person who smashed Sosa's boombox after Sosa vanished on Closing Day.

"I don't have the balls to do that," Wood said. "There have been times in the past . . . (when Wood felt like doing that). I came in four or five days later to get my stuff and I didn't notice anything."

So Sosa will need to look elsewhere to find the guilty party. Only 23 suspects to go (not counting the manager, coaches, and assorted clubhouse workers). (Actually, probably more than 23 -- rosters had expanded on September 1st. Will Sosa find the real boombox killer? Stay tuned!)
