Will Prior be 100%?

Postby Bobby Baseball » Tue Feb 22, 2005 5:21 pm

Do you think Mark Prior has put his injury problems behind him and what type of numbers would you predict for a healthy Prior?

I'll never put a pitcher down for more than 17-18 wins, but that's about where Prior will be. I'm thinking something like 17 wins, 2.50-2.75 ERA, somewhere over 225K. I won't get more exact than that, because I'm not certain how much I trust all the doctors saying he's healthy.

Though... Will Carroll at Baseball Prospectus gave him a green light on the team health report.

I just keep seeing these lists and cheatsheets ranking him as the 6th, 7th, 8th best starting pitcher and like 25-30 overall. I think people are being overly cautious with him this year, or maybe they were burned by him last year. I know I was, but I'm counting on him again this year.

I predict he'll win the CY too. I have him down for: 16-8, 2.96 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, 266 K's

Predicting anybody to have more than 18 W is a stretch regardless of how high your hopes are. 17 is as many as I'll predict for anybody. So those 16 I have for Prior are significant.

Boy, I sure hope so, my Prior jersey got mighty uh, DUSTY, waiting around for him to hit the mound last year!! :-D

If he lingers on the board (and I will do everything I can to talk him up as a risk...) I might try to get him w/ my 3rd pick but I can't see him falling that far and am not taking him w/ 1 or 2 (drafting 9/12).
