finally retired 7 years after throwing his final MLB pitch:


I always wonder what the Cubs' rotation could've been with Wood, Prior and Zambrano.

It is a shame his career was cut short by injuries. Had him and Wood stayed healthy, there is no telling how different the Cubs fortunes may have turned out last decade.

The sad thing about Prior over Wood is that his injuries were not do to mechanics but just accidents. I remember being at the game that he ran into the second baseman for the Braves I think. But that line drive off his elbow was as sad as it gets for a pitcher. He was something else in his prime to watch.

"Including the postseason, the 22-year-old Prior threw 234 2/3 innings in 2003, that despite spending the second-half of July on the disabled list due to shoulder soreness. On the season, he threw more than 120 pitches in a game 10 times and more than 130 four times. From his first start in September through his complete game against the Braves in the Division Series, his pitch counts were 131, 129, 109, 124, 131, 133, 133. After that season, he was never the same."

Really? What was Dusty thinking?
