From everything I’ve seen and read, Mark Prior looks firmly on the bubble to break camp with the Yankees. At the least, he’ll end up starting the season at the Triple-A Scranton branch (I bet he’ll be pitching to Ryan Howard). He had one bad outing this spring, but has an ERA of 1.17. That should get him slated as the number 1 call-up when the Yankees need bullpen help this season. I’m happy for the guy. He had horrible luck in Chicago, multiple surgeries, smacked in the head by a high-schooler, and it’s nice to see him pitching again.
Of course, if he pitches in the Major Leagues again, it just might make the value of his baseball cards go up again, and that would be very helpful. To me. If I want to go to college.
Oh yes, there are more.
