Breaking news Kerry Wood will retire today !
— Bruce Levine (@ESPNBruceLevine) May 18, 2012
Bruce Levine broke the news on Twitter and naturally everyone is going apeshit.
Surprisingly, the first inkling that something major was up came from the unlikely source of Harry Teinowitz' Twitter feed last night when he said there would be huge Cubs news coming.
I don't think anyone saw this coming, but I don't think anyone is overly surprised either.
I'm sure we'll have more updates as they come out today.
Bonus feature – All 20 strikeouts from May 6, 1998
