Prior washed up?

Postby rich101682 » Wed Aug 31, 2005 1:34 pm

I found this on Fanball about Mark Prior:

Cubs manager Dusty Baker had Prior on a 90-100 pitch count after he threw 130 pitches in his last start. It's clear that the right-handed Prior isn't as dominant as he once was, but he's still a solid option in fantasy leagues.

Are they saying that he's not as dominant as he once was this season? Or are they talking...you know, forever? It sounds to me like they could be implying either.

I should think that there's been nothing so far to suggest that a 100% healthy Mark Prior can't still be one of the best pitchers in baseball.

I mean, it's not like he's a 38-year old Bostonian or anything... :-b

Mark Prior is nowhere near washed-up!!!
He can still be one of most dominating pitchers in the majors when healthy and not throwing 125 pitches every game. That said another year of Dustyball could burn him out for good :-o

All in good fun, bud. I'd like to see Schilling could turn his career around, just as long as he waits until after the Cards win the Series this year.

He's definately not washed up. He's still K'ing tons and he can be as dominating as he wants but he just needs more time. He's still young.

And not pitching 120-130 pitches might help as well.

Geez gets one injury prone type season last year and then gets hit in the elbow on a comebacker and now he only throws about 100 pitches a game so therefore he is washed up. O please.... :-°
