They definitely need rotation help, but dumping 40+ million into guys like Carlos Silva or Kyle Lohse would not be the solution. Those guys are no better than the Wandy Rodriguez/Woody Williams types they already have. But Prior could be a very legit #2 SP if he could ever make it through a season healthy. Of course, therein lies the gamble, but if it's a one year deal, it's really not that big of a gamble. It's like how I felt about the Gagne deal for Milwaukee -- yeah it's 10 million dollars, but it's only one year -- if he doesn't cut it, oh well, he's gone after the year. If he's successful, he's a big boost to your team and your playoff hopes. For teams without good rotations (Houston, Washington, amongst a few others), it might be worth a gamble.

That would be a real shock to me. Based on my personal experience, he has the smoothest and least effort delivery. Also when he was the next big thing, all people talked about how great his mechanics were. I'm not saying his injuries didn't result from poor mechanics but I'd be very surprised if that were the case.
