    Default New Good Luck Charm in Fresno


    Chaz Wood Is Making An Impression


    With his 6-3 record on a horrible Taco team (is there any other kind?), you can see why Chaz 'Stupendous' Wood has become the team's most popular good luck charm. "He may be angry all the time, and he may be a lazy shit-head in the clubhouse," one team mate said, "but he's our angry, lazy shit-head."

    "We love having Stupendous Wood here," a team insider added.

    While some fans point to the big right-hander's 2-16 record and his 8.40 ERA last season, members of his team get a bit stiff in their defense of the 31-year-old hurler. "He's got the hot hand right now, and he's not afraid to give it to the rest of us," one anonymous player said. "We all love Stupendous Wood and his hot hands. You should see him change up on his slider and his fork ball."

    Rumors are that the team has even gotten a little ritualistic about Stupendous Wood, and that they now gather behind closed clubhouse doors thirty minutes before each game so that everyone gets proper time to rub a little Wood.

    What kind of staying power Stupendous Wood will have this season is debatable. He's not 18 anymore, after all. It may require more than a stiff wind to keep that ERA+ up there with the bigger boys. And, let's face it, the Taco's are about as attractive as a Hollywood fan after he takes the makeup off, but for a team starving for wins none of that matters. For now the Tacos are happy waking up each morning knowing their side has Stupendous Wood.

    Update: Stupendous Wood extended his winning streak to five games this week, running his record to 8-3 (3.69) with a sweat-drenched victory at Milwaukee and a white-washing of the Metropolitans in Cap City. "Stupendous Wood really put the gag on us, today," one Metropolitan said after coming out of the post-game shower.

    A limp Wood was drained after that Cap City game, but said he looked forward to his next outing against Northampton. "Nothing gets me more excited than thinking about playing with a bunch of Dykes," Stupendous Wood said as he smoked a cigarette and lounged in the team's jacuzzi. "I can't wait to get to the mound."

    It's a sentiment that most Taco fans have these days. They just can't wait to get more Stupendous Wood.
