Too bad about Prior

 

Granted there are plenty of Minnesota fans who aren't too upset by this news, but it's a damned shame about Mark Prior.

Likely done, Prior ends up with a hundred more whiffs than innings pitched, nearly a .600 winning precentage for a franchise that played .480 ball when he was in Chicago.

He could have been as special as Mauer.

(Imagine the screeds had Prior's father not hated the Twins while being obsessed about his kid playing on WGN and the Twins had decided to draft Prior rather than Mauer. The outcry would have easily eclipsed the 2002 griping about how Prior would have meant the difference for the Twins had they chosen him over Mauer.)

The consolation prize, of course, is that Prior did make well over $10 million bucks by age 28, including $1 million this year.

So his dad did get something out of the deal.
