mark prior? no way he'll get traded or become closer. he'll probably just start the season in the minors. if he can stay healthy and show signs of being good again he'll be up soon enough.

They should just take it slow with Prior, let him regain stamina, and let him regain strength. Than when he is ready again and his confidence is back up, THATS when you call him back up to the majors and you see shades of 2003 all over again.

Because people don't mind taking risks in later rounds. Huge if, but if he does stay healthy, he will be very good. I never draft Prior, or in most cases injury prone pitchers. Although this year I did draft Harden in a local league. I just hope he stays healthy. :-o
