What is it with Cubs pitchers getting all surly after getting roughed up the Braves? Last year Carlos Zambrano kicked off a mini Operation Shutdown after Atlanta torched him. Last night Kerry Wood walked two Braves and gave up two more and the lead. Then he had himself a little hissy fit. Patrick Mooney of reports. Video of Wood’s comments below:

Kerry Wood walked off the mound and squeezed his glove before throwing it into the stands. He tossed his hat to the fans before disappearing into the dugout ... His postgame media session lasted 45 seconds. He cut it off after a reporter mentioned the glove.

“Irrelevant, dude, and why the (bleep) would you even bring that up?” Wood said. “You guys have a good night.”

With that, Wood stormed away from his locker.

Yeah, silly to ask Wood a question like that given just how often players throw their gloves and hats into the stands. It’s a total dog-bites-man story.
