    Mark Prior No-hitter

    Mark Prior has just left the game in the middle of a no-hitter. After a pitch he shook his head and grabbed his arm, they then took him out.

    Re: Mark Prior No-hitter

    Even though he is a Cubbie, I've always liked Mark Prior. And its really sad to see this happen to him if it ends up being serious because he has just had no luck at all with keeping healthy, or any of the Cubs for that matter.

    Re: Mark Prior No-hitter

    This is second hand information, so take it for what it's worth.

    But friends of mine who work in and/or play minor league baseball insist Prior juiced to help his quick rise to the bigs. They say the arm problems are at least partially due to his muscles/tendons/whatever being damaged and never completely healing after getting off the stuff.

    Like I say, take it for what it's worth. But the info comes from folks who watched/covered him on a regular basis.

    If true, it's very, very sad.

    Eric Gagne says "Hi"
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    I disagree. If true, that is his own fault. It would be sad if he just played by the rules, and kept getting hurt, that would be a "life isn't fair" situation. This is a "cheaters never prosper" situation.

    Of course we have learned many do prosper: Sheffield, Giambi, Bonds, McGwire, Sosa, Raffy, Bagwell, Biggio.....on and on.

    Re: Mark Prior No-hitter

    I don't know if this is right, but the cubs website is saying he was pulled after 5 2/3rds, after throwing 103 pitches.

    Is it just me, or does that seem wrong? 103 pitches in 6 no-hit innings?

    I've always felt bad for Prior. Guy just can't stay healthy, and its a shame with his talent.

    Strongly suspected it myself -- the guy's legs were freakish.

    Now about Clemens...........

    He may not have given up any hits, but he walked 5.

    Re: Mark Prior No-hitter

    Oh, nevermind. He had five walks in the 6 innings pitched, which is why he was already up to 103.

    Chalk this up to not, "doing the right thing, even when others are not looking". INTEGRITY.

    Well, of course I agree with that assessment. I meant it's sad if in fact another athlete has been exposed as a cheater. As in "a sad commentary."

    Should have been more clear.

    Biggio? Are you serious? Yeah, him and David Eckstein. Where did you hear that?

    Wonder what kind of careers Wood & Prior would have had if they weren't Mojo'd by the Curse of the Scrubs? Be afraid Carlos...be very afraid.
