Prior May Start Season as #5

I have the chance to grab him also. I just don't think I need to be worried about Prior at this point. I am not sure that would ever be any god even if he managed to get healthy. His mid- 90's FB is long gone and he may never be dominant again! I guess we will see. But for now I don't think I want him.

Mark Prior Update From Yahoo

Mar 24 Prior (shoulder) passed all the tests the day after his third Cactus League game, and the Cubs right-hander will get another start next Wednesday to see if he is ready for the regular season, the Cubs' Web Site reports.
Recommendation: "[Thursday] was an improvement, obviously, and everybody was pleased," manager Lou Piniella said. "Today was very positive. He had normal soreness that a pitcher has, normal stiffness, and nothing more." After the outing, Prior said he would be ready when the Cubs need a fifth starter on April 7. Piniella didn't want to look that far ahead, but was encouraged that Prior showed better command of his pitches. Prior's velocity was still just in the high 80s, so he'll likely have to show improvement on Wednesday to beat out Wade Miller for the fifth starter job.


I'm not trying to give anyone's hopes up, but for a FA pickup, Prior may end up being more valuable this season than people think.

I've satiated my Prior mancrush by owning him in my dynasty. I have no intention of drafting him again.

Keep in mind this is also a report from Cubs.com beat writer Carrie Muskat. Prior could have announced he has AIDS while a puma was gnawing on his throwing arm and she would still throw a positive spin on it.

Prior did look better, but I'd keep your expectations tempered a bit still.

I will keep the bandaids on my Prior jersey until he gets at least a few innings under his belt.

PS. That 'pitcherette' card just about made me spit beer all over my computer...that's some funny stuff...
