Brandon Wood To Play In The AFL This Winter

SRSLY. His career is damn close to being over.
"It’s about getting at-bats, working on my swing and my stance, and I didn’t think it was necessary to go to the Dominican Republic to do that," Wood said. "The AFL season is four or five weeks. I can get 100 at-bats. It will be good for me."
It's all too easy to see a scenario where he ends up cut in spring training (he's arb eligible next year, thus expensive) and spends the rest of his career lost in a maze of minor league deals.


I guess it's a function of my age, but I saw "AFL" in your headline and thought, "What position is he going to play? Place kicker?"

Increasingly, he reminds me of Larry Barnes. It's a sad thing, and I can't help but think poor development has contributed to his failure so far.
<snerk> Nice.

Boy, it's been a while, hasn't it? I knew that name sounded familiar; he came up in a few at-bats with the offense-starved 2003 Dodgers. What a Hail Mary that was.
