    What a sad story. I wouldn’t mind if the Cubs signed him to a minor league deal and see what happens. You gotta love his determination! I hope he does make a comeback. I always did, and will be, pulling for this guy! Wouldn’t it be amazing if he got 10 wins in the major league deal?!! GO MARK YOU CAN DO IT MAN!

    He’s had the strangest career of any player I can ever remember.

    Prior might be a good long reliever out of the pen. I would love to see him get a shot if his arm action returns.

    Mark Prior would be a guy I’d like to have a beer with. Can you imagine how sad of a story he has to tell. The guy was easily the best pitcher in the game. And even playing for the cubs he never choked in the playoffs. I miss his presence on the team and would love to see him back in a cubs uniform in a couple years.

      Never choked in the playoffs… except for game 6 of the 2003 nlcs

    Maybe if he’d learn proper pitching mechanics, he’d be a viable pitcher in the majors. I’m guessing he won’t, and we’ll just keep rinsing and repeating…the same injury cycle that has plagued his entire career.

    This former Chicagoan remembers Prior as a cry-baby; wish to be wrong.
