I'd watch Prior during the Spring. If he comes out strong, throwing well, has good command of his pitches and doesn't over-do-it.... I believe Mark will have a much better season and should be on most peeps starting lineups. :-?

I agree w/ his age he has huge upside, but as a fan I am weary after watching him so close the last few years. He is still good even when battling injuries, just not great. I look for him to play well, but still have a few small DL appearances. If stays mostly healthy for the season will have a huge year in 07. Definately a winner in a keeper league. ;-D

I would take Prior cause of the upside as said and knowing that he could get injured I still think his value is just to good to pass up if available.

Before the injury 4-1 62Ks 2.9ERA 1.08WHIP 1CG I would say he was pretty dominant.He really only had two bad innings during that time also.I think he is going to have a huge year,and it is his contract year.Just no more freak injuries

Your Thoughts?

Thanks ;-D

Prior is not overhyped at all, he's most definetly a Cy Young talent.

Just has the injury bug! I'm staying away...let someone else bite their fingernails wondering when he'll go on the IR.
