Kerry Wood Swears At Reporter After Cubs Loss On Tuesday (VIDEO)

Chicago Cubs reliever Kerry Wood has been pretty awful in 2012, sporting a 14.54 ERA and a 2.77 WHIP in 4.1 innings this season, and things boiled over on Tuesday. Wood gave up two runs in the eighth inning on Tuesday night and cost the Cubs the game, which caused him to toss his glove into the stands after the inning in disgust. In the post-game interview, Wood was asked by reporters about the throwing his glove, and from there things got tense.

Wood shot off a visceral response: "Irrelevant, dude. Why the [bleep] would you even bring that up?" He cut off the interview at that point and walked away from the press. Here is the video of Wood's response, via CSN-Chicago:
