Cubs | Pitching coach believes no wrong done with Prior, Wood

The Associated Press reports a lengthy investigation by Chicago Cubs pitching coach Larry Rothschild determined it wasn't anything he did or didn't do that led to the staff's many injuries, particularly those to SP Kerry Wood and SP Mark Prior in a year when rookie pitchers made 80 starts for the Cubs. "You know you're doing things right, so you keep doing them. In 2003, everybody with the Cubs was a genius. We kept doing things the way we always did, and two years later we were idiots. In truth, you're neither one," Rothschild said. "In all my years, as long as I have been a pitching coach, I've never had anyone hurt like that."
