Kerry Wood gave his hands the Moises Alou treatment

The recently retired Kerry Wood was on the Waddle & Silvy show today and got to talking about his teammates who provided leadership and stuff. One he mentioned: Moises Alou.  One of the hosts asks him about, well, Alou’s particular hand-preparation technique.

And Wood said he did it too. To deal with blister problems. “Peeing on my fingers was probably the least, like, amount of stuff I’ve done,” he said.  He said you’re willing to try anything when you’re having problems.  Go to around the 19 minute mark for the exchange.

Baseball ain’t always pretty, people.

(thanks to Anthony for the heads up)

    So much great stuff in this interview, and Craig chose to dwell on the Moises Alou angle. Sheesh.

    If peeing your hands is cool, then I’m Moises Alou!

    Sounds like a WIZ of an idea, I’d say.

    On one hand… urea is a component of some over-the-counter dry skin preparations, it might have some effectiveness; Wood’s just cutting out the middleman.

    On the other hand… you could just buy a cream for that.

    Everyone knows it’s only good to sooth jellyfish stings.

      Actually, that doesn’t work so well.

    Moises must be very proud to have a “treatment” named after him.

    Well, I am suddenly very glad I never got the chance to meet either Moises Alou or Kerry Wood during their playing careers and shake their hand………

    It probably wasn’t easy doing it, being a Wood & the lack of control issues. I wonder if Dicky & Wang do the same?

    the application still confuses me. if you pee on your hands it is going to splash back all over you. so do you pee in a cup and then pour it on your hands? do you keep a pee cup in your bathroom?… You’ve made millions, i’m sure you can afford to find a dermatologist to figure out a better solution.
