    Mark Prior

    It's early, it's an extremely-small sample size.

    That said ...

    Hello!

    I'm intrigued.

    Re: Mark Prior

    I have a disturbing confession to make... I actually grew up a Cubs fan and was a fan until Sosa left in 2005. So I really liked Prior and have followed his comeback attempts over the last few years. Nothing would make me happier than to see him be successful and get a call up for the Reds. Hopefully he can stay healthy. His perseverance has been impressive.

    Re: Mark Prior

    Prior started out last year awfully impressive in AAA too.

    His first 6 appearances: 8ip, 2.25 ERA, 5 walks, 19 strikeouts.
    The rest of the season: 17ip, 4.76 ERA, 18 walks, 19 strikeouts.

    So far, so good. But he did this last season too, then fall off of a cliff. When he is on, he has the stuff to get Major Leaguers out still. No question in my mind. Last year at least, he wasn't anywhere near consistent with that stuff.

    Where's his fastball at these days?
    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I listened to the Bats' broadcast and I heard 91-92. So that tweet sounds about right. But several folks on here have said the Bats' gun is 2-3 mph hot. I guess that would make him upper 80s and maybe touching 90. Not that velocity is the be-all, end-all of pitching discussions.
    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.
