Deadspin - It's hard to believe that despite all the comeback attempts from former Cubs pitcher Mark Prior, he hasn't actually pitched in the Major Leagues since the summer of 2006. Since then, he's tried to latch on with the Padres, Yankees, and Rangers, never once making it to The Show. Now the Red Sox are the 31-year-old's next stop on the comeback trail.
Wicked Pissah...You thought fans were fucking psyched for Aaron Freaking Cook, just wait till Mark Prior tosses out a 2 inning, 4k's, 0 hit performance against a bunch of 20 year olds for the Lowell Spinners in a few weeks. There might be a million man march down Landsdowne to bring this guy up.
I can hear the radio calls now: "Whatta you's guys think about moving Bahd back to the bullpen, and giving Mahk Priah a shot? This kid has talent. I'm gonna hang up and let you's discuss."
In all seriousness, hope it works out, the guy deserves a break. Maybe the Sox can call up Dr. Frankenstein or whoever kept patching up Ramon Martinez and Brett Saberhagen for their annual July-September push year after year. Worked miracles for them.
