Classy post. Shows a lot about you to be HAPPY about an injury to a player. Hating a team is one thing, to be HAPPY about an injury to a player on that team is worse then pathetic.

Furthermore, he will be back in 10 days. That must really piss you off. I'm sure you are like-Damn!! Why could it not be season or career ending?

I think Hangar's quote was more that this is hopefully the sign that the Cubs are ****ed this year. Irregardless, Prior's a little punk ****head, so he can wallow in the depth's of hell for all I care. But he's a Cub, so that's already taken care of.

But if he played for the Sox we know you would say he is one of the best pitchers in the game, no?

Doublem23 didn't say he wasn't one of the best pitchers in baseball, we all know prior is one of the best around. But don't be so quick just to call it a 10 day injury, some of these things can be nagging and lead to other injuries.

You are correct but all indications are that it is not that big of a deal. I really am more amazed that there are some posters here that are CELEBRATING. That is classless anyway you slice it.

The cubs have a lot to worry about. No lefties in the starting rotation, possible future injuries, the Astros, possible lack of offense, and samMe's clubhouse cancerous ways.

Why are you being retarded? You wish injury on a person just because they make more money than you or because the media hypes him as a great pitcher. Maybe the media hypes him because he is a great pitcher and he will continue to be a great pitcher for the rest of his career.

Yes, he's on the Cubs and not the Sox but that's really not his fault. Wishing him to be hurt seems pretty ridiculous.

Show me where I said I wished for him to be hurt. I'm only coming up with possible reasons why some people are glad he suffered an injury. I know he is going to bounce back and be fine. Yes I'm sick of him being shoved down our throats, and why should someone busting their ass through college be upset when a millionaire gets a boo-boo?

Sounds like you're a little jealous. When you have the talent that Prior does then you can go and make millions. So are you happy when Frank Thomas gets hurt too? I mean he is a millionare. Also, I'm sure most major league players busted their ass their whole life to reach the major leagues. I'm sorry you have to write some papers in college.

Hey Kittle42, ye of the grammatical ways -- I actually thought about you this weekend. No, not in "that kind of way" -- not that there's anything wrong with that, etc etc.

I'm reading this book called Twilight Teams by Jeff Stuart. It's about 6 MLB teams that moved from one city to another during the 50s-70s: Boston Braves, St. Louis Browns, Phila A's, NY Giants, Brooklyn Dodgers and Washington Senators. The book is so-so. I'll write a review when I'm done, but what blew me away was the atrocious amount of typos. This book was badly in need of a proofreader before publishing. There were 3 glaring typos in the first 5 pages, so I started keeping score on the last page just to see how bad it gets. And it's pretty damn bad. This man commits atrocities to commas and apostrophes like you've never seen in your life.

Anyway, keep up the battle! :cool:

This reminds me of when I used to work for the (former) WWF. They started putting out books "written" by the wrestlers - I believe the first one was The Rock's. In any event, the books were given to me and a few others to proof, and they were always, alwyas filled with misspellings and atrocious grammar - they even would screw up the names of their own talent. Idiots. And then when we would suggest edits, they rarely ever made them. I suppose when you are pandering to wrestling fans who can't read anyway, it doesn't really matter.

I think the jury is still out on that, though even if Joe Mauer is really, really awesome, I'd still rather have Prior than him.

What I'm saying is in a three game series, there'd be a chance we wouldn't even face Prior. But if Mauer turns out to be real good, I don't like the thought of our pitchers facing him 9-14 times a series...

Don't generalize here. I've only read one wrestling book (Mick Foley's "Have a Nice Day"), and if you're a wrestling fan, it's a great read. He has some hilarious anecdotes, and the reader gets a glimpse inside the mind of a crazy man (watching some of Foley's matches, I'm convinced that he's pretty deranged). Aside from his in-ring antics, though, Foley is a very intelligent guy. It's not an epic of literature, but it's not supposed to be. I'd call it the "Ball Four" of wrestling books.

Agreed. Mick Foley is a talented writer whose book gave wrestling fans a glimpse of what it is like in front of and behind the scenes of wrestling that's rarely, if ever, seen through the lens of a TV camera.

I heard the wise guys talking about this today. Bafone said he had similar problems, which eventually led to him snapping the achilles tendon. He said normally this is a problem with football players, as their muscular cavs cause extreme pressure on the tendon. Prior's legs are built like a football player, which is why he has this problem.

I'd say this makes me happy, but Xerxes might chastise me again. :D:

I was talking with 2 people today, one of whom was a Cardinal fan, and the other a Cub fan. The Card fan said, "Prior hurt his achilles, the long and painful season for the Cubs begins." Without missing a beat the Cub fan replies, "Well at least Mark Prior is still alive." [refering to Darryl Kile]

Now people were saying before that cheering an injury is low, but this? I think this wins out in the lowness factor.

Hey tough guy, I know plenty of Cubs fans that were pretty happy when Thomas went down. I still hear people bring up the tricep injury and laugh. I for one was glad to see the injury to Prior but wish it was for a longer time. And I'm also sick of people calling him a lock as a future hall of famer. Yes he may someday, but let him pitch great for more than one full season to make that assumption. With the overwork Dustiny Baker puts on him, he could have a very short career.

I'm not jealous because I don't want to be a baseball player (I wouldn't mind it.) I don't understand why people are feeling so bad for this guy after he suffered a minor injury. I'm already reading posts from Cub fans to say a prayer. What makes you think I was happy when Frank went down with an injury? I never even said I was happy that Prior got hurt.

Not that it really matters, but ESPN showed highlights of him fielding a ball in the outfield then throwing home. It didn't look too pretty. Yeah Konerko sucks, I know. I was just joking around about the Canseco thing anyways.

I never said he wasn't, but if you're honestly reaching that Sox fans are the only fans in the world whose opinions of pro athletes is dependant on what hat they wear, that's ridiculous. There have been a line of Sox players I didn't like, and there are many players on teams I despise that I am somewhat fond of. Anyway, Prior's still going to be raking in the dough.

Aw screw that crap. I grew up LOVING the White Sox and HATING the Cubs damn near as much. I bleed black and silver but that doesn't mean that I have to ignore the Flubs. Hating the Flubs and their mindless fans is almost half the fun of loving the White Sox.

Wow, this is really starting to turn ugly. I hate the Cubs as well, but I still wouldn't say the hate for the Cubs is on the same level as my love for the Sox. I will always care much more about the Sox then what is happening with the Cubs. And even wanting them to lose, I would rather they were all healthy and just performed poorly on the field. To me that is much more rewarding then having the staff injured, because then it would be everyone saying, "oh, if only the staff wasn't injured we'd be the best." Let them play healthy and let them play it out. If they are good, so be it, nothing we can do to change that. If they fail, all the better being completely healthy. If we have to hope for injury to have them fail we are only acknowledging how good they are that that is the only way they can fail. And I still think to hope or be happy for an injury to any player, regardless of how much they make, is just in poor taste and sportsmanship.

Sure sure, but think about it... no matter how the Flubs choose to choke, their fans will come up with some lame excuse as to why it happened (Steve Bartman and that whole "blowing up the ball" incident springs to mind).

The most important thing on this planet is FAMILY so if the Cubs entire starting staff tears their labrums, they'll get to spend more time with their family, they'll still get their monster sized payday, they'll eventually heal, and we don't have to put up with another playoff run by the Flubs. It's a win/win situaltion for everybody. :D:

I've got to agree with Realist here. Growing up on the North Side, I watched Cub fans writhe as their team stunk up to mediocrity (didn't they start like 0-10 one year? '97ish?). Obviously, if I had to choose between both teams winning 100 or losing 100, I'd choose the 100 Ws for my Sox, but hating the Cubs can be just as fun as loving the White Sox. I personally think anyone who grew up in Chicago and says the opposite ought to check their allegiances.

03-02-2004, 07:32 AM
This thread reminds me of a conversation that I had last year with a couple of co-workers. They are die-hard Sox fans and hate the Cubs with serious passion. The discussion turned to whether a Sox fan would cheer for the Cubs if they were playing the Twins and the Sox needed the Twins to lose in order to make the playoffs. Both co-workers said they would never cheer for the Cubs, no matter what. What would everyone else do?

While I could never bring myself to actually cheer or applaud the Cubs, I would still prefer the Sox going to the playoffs over the Cubs losing to the Twins. Keep in mind this was all a hypothetical situation, but it was an indication of how some die-hard Sox fans think. These guys would rather have the Cubs lose, to the Twins mind you, and eliminate the Sox from the playoffs. Thoughts?

Did they explicitally say that they'd rather see the Cubs lose than the Sox make the play-offs, because I wouldn't cheer for the Cubs in that situation, I'd just root against Minnesota.

Anyone who would take 1 measly Cub win over the Sox getting in the post-season needs to check their allegiances.

They said they could never cheer for the Cubs, no matter what the situation. That is what started the debate. My hate for the Cubs runs very deep and I was raised to despise the Cubs, but if it means the difference between the Sox going to the playoffs or sitting at home watching the playoffs, I think the answer is obvious.

I would say you cant be a true Sox fan if you would want the Twins to beat the Cubs and win the division over the Sox just so the Cubs wouldnt win. To root for a Cubs loss at the cost of the Sox going to the playoffs is completely ridiculous.
