Prior just got hit by a batted ball and went down. After a few minutes, they took him out. Anyone see what happened? I'm stuck at work.

Prior just took a line drive by Brad Hawpe right off his elbow. He left the game in tears. I don't like when people get hurt even if their Cubs, but this is the guy who left the autograph signing for kids and just seems like an ass.

The ball hit his elbow so hard that it ricocheted in the air to Ramirez at third for an out.

That did not sound good. Take away the allegiances, and this play will make you cringe.

That looked bad! He GONE! It's a shame to see a good young pitcher get hurt like that, but he is a cub - so good riddance! I don't see anything keeping us from a sweep now at the end of June.

Yikes. Sounds nasty and definitely not one of those injuries you like to see, Cub player or otherwise.

You can't help but laugh at the "funny" injuries (i.e. pinched finger in chair, strained elbow surfing the web, etc.) but this one sounds bad.:(:

That description alone was cringe-inducing. Ridiculous Cub injuries are good for a laugh (eg. "The Sneeze"), but this sounds unfortunate.

When you see the shot he took, you might not feel the same. Hopefully it caught him a little bit below the bone in the muscle region, but it sure looks and sounds like it caught him square on the pitching elbow.

There's not much muscle in elbow (even in the "muscle region") so much that I would not be surprised if it were broken. That was an absolute bullet. They played the replay, with sound, and it just sounded horrible!

Regardless, it sucks that Prior got injured again, all that talent and he spends most of his career on the sidelines so far, that's too bad. (Doesn't matter if he is a Cub or not).

listen- i would never hope for injury on anyone, but prior is not a saint. didn't anyone read the suntimes article where it said that mccarthy had emailed him prior to their start and that prior didn't email him back? also- he did leave the just ducky signing. i'm not celebrating anyone getting hurt, but i'm certainly not going to lose sleep over it. and i'm also not going to feel bad for him. part of the reason he gets paid millions of dollars is that his career exposes him to injury, and it could be over in an instant. thats just what happens when you play this game. there are far greater tragedies for me to be concerned with.

gloating is wrong, but so is over sentimentalizing.

First of all, as do the other posters here, I wish Prior well and hope he is not hurt seriously.

Now for my reaction: These poor guys can't win for losing. I really feel sorry for the cub players. It seems like the team does everything they can to screw them up but the players have such poor dumb luck on top of it. It's really pitiful.

And I'm sure Jim Hendry is glad he hung onto Matt Clement now. Oh. Wait...Never mind.

Please.....there is nothing wrong with being happy that Mark Prior got hit in the elbow with a baseball

If this happened to Johan Santana, I would be happy about it. And so would alot of other people. And if you are a Cardinals and/or Brewers fan, you should be giddy about this. ANd I'll be honest, I am happy about it because Mark Prior is a Cub.
Why shouldn't you feel bad about it - Mark Prior is a millionare few times over, has a hot wife, probably has hot girlfriends, has two beautiful homes in Lincoln Park and San Diego and a B.A. in business from UCLA. The rest of his life is a first class ticket to do anything he wants. Barring a family tragedy or a life threatening disease, these aren't people you weep for.

If this happened to a 19-year-old in Single A who has nothing going for him, I would feel bad. Otherwise, there is no shame in feeling giddy over something like this.

if baseball is what made prior happiest then i am afraid to see what happens to him, because to me he does not come off as a happy human being. the best example of a respectable cub to me is mark grace. the man was a great player, always seemed happy and his love of the game oozed out of his skin.

prior seems like his fame has gotten to his head.

So Prior is a bad guy because he didn't want to give McCarthy advise when McCarthy was going to pitch against him? :?:

Possibly, but my main point was there are things, to some, that are more important than money.

I'm not denying the fact he has had issues before, but skipping out on an autpgraph signing and not replaying to McCarthy before he pitched (Brandon and Prior did converse following the game, according to a radio interview with McCarthy this week) are hardly major sins.

I doubt that prior would have even had time to get an x-ray at this point. This is highly suspect (not that his arm isn't actually broken - it was an awful shot).

All I know is that somewhere out there, someone is sticking pins a Mark Prior doll. Team allegiances aside, this guy just can't catch a break this season. From the looks of that photo of Prior on the ground, holding his elbow and grimmacing, it looks like that stung like a mofo, to put it mildly.

I'm sorry, did I miss the post that mentioned he was near death or that he will never have normal use of his elbow again? If that's the case, then I will feel bad.

Last time I checked, the worst case scenario was his pitching elbow maybeinjured and he could be out a few weeks or the entire season. If you are a team in the National League that worries about the Cubs being competitive, I'm sorry but this is a blessing.

Barring something life threatening or a tragedy to his family, why should I feel sorry for someone who is adeqautely compensated if they sustain an injury like the one Prior has?

First off your livelihood is something you need and rely on to make a living and support their families.
Prior has been blessed with things in life most of us will never even be able to fathom. And I am not talking about just money. This does not threaten his overall physical health, nor his mental health. He will be compensated millions for this injury.
Hopefully Prior realizes that if his "livelihood" should be balanced by the good things in life that have been given to him and realize 99.99999... percent of the world is in a much worse position than he is in.

So you're assuming he's a bad guy, despite knowing anything about what McCarthy said? What if McCarthy emailed Prior telling him about being called up and said he didn't expect a response but just wanted to let him know what was going on. The story even says that McCarthy "sent him [Prior] a message telling him he knew he couldn't ask for any advice this time."

i am making that assumption based on the signing story, the mccarthy story, a personal story, and a story i heard from someone who plays/has played in the big leagues with him.

based on my information, its a safe assumption to make.

Ok, a couple of things. I feel real bad for Prior on this one. He's gotta be in some serious pain unless they have a morphine drip on him that is flowing like Niagara Falls. The Flubs were going nowhere fast this year even with Prior, so I will not get cheery over this.

Let's just hope for the best, after he is a human being before a Flub player (and coulda been a Twin, but that is a different discussion).

BTW, reading the description of the shot gave me flashbacks to Wilbur Wood (a/k/a the "Real Wood") taking that line shot off his kneecap...............

On one hand, it's hard to feel sorry for Cub fans considering the crap teams that have been put on the field yet they still line up by the millions to hand their money over to the Tribune Co.

On the other hand, there are the die-hards that are pretty much stuck. They've been fans of the team for as long as they can remember and couldn't imagine switching to another team. They hate what the organization is doing but are powerless to stop it.

just to clarify- i feel bad for mark prior.

but i certainly don't feel bad for cubs fans suffering through this season.

Exactly.

Also, it's one thing to poke fun at how Dusty overworks pitchers and wears them out or at how certain pitchers are overrated because they are very injury prone (Wood), but a freak accident that causes a serious injury is another matter.

Those of us old enough to remember 1976 will remember Ron LeFlore's line shot that shattered Wilbur Wood's kneecap.

Ever since they shattered that boombox, everything has been falling apart. Then they had the audacity to trade his ShamME*ness without so much as a replacement... heck, he probably deserves a gold plated boombox for making that team the hot commodity it currently is.

Meanwhile, Baltimore is in first place... things that make you go hmmmm...:D:

Nobody mentioned this yet but the inning after Prior got hit the Cubs scored 4 runs w/2 outs to take a 5 - 1 lead. All because Colorado gave up a hit to the Cubs pitcher and their third-baseman booted a ground ball.

Now we know why the Rockies suck...

That's just it though. Nobody is saying you have to cry for the guy or lose sleep over his injury or pray for his health. You could be indifferent to the whole thing. But that doesn't mean you should be a jackass about it and that's what the post that ignited this conversation conveyed.

I agree. It's important that people show some class in this situation. Whether you like Prior or not, it's possible that his career may be drastically affected by this injury. Rumors are already circulating that he may done for the season. I don't wish something like that on anybody.

To play devil's advocate, everybody here remembers how down this board was when Frank and Maggs went down last season, and how angry we were when Cubs and Twins fans mocked us. Let's not sink to their level by laughing at Prior or the Cubs.

Hardly, Barry Bonds is just an incredibly bad person. And any injury he suffers from is probably the reactant of what he does to his body with all those chemicals he has used. Add in the fact he is a complete jackass, a cheater, and cheated on his wife... well, he's just the epitome of crap.

He doesn't deserve the record, and I hope he never plays ball again. He's made enough money in his career to live 800 lives, he doesn't need to be back in action.

I'm not a doc, either, but that picture is but one instant. We don't know what he was doing with that arm the next second, he could have grabbed it with his left hand to support it, or something else. That pic does not give us insight into the condition of his arm other than the fact he is in pain.

I've now had two people tell me in the last two days that they love the Cubs and don't care if they win. One even said she likes it when they lose because when they win it gets "too stressful". Now I always thought this attitude was sort of a straw man creation. Most people went to Wrigley for the beer, the babes and the tourist attraction. But I never thought actual Cub fans would admit to not caring how well the team does. Unbelievable. I told them both that they are Wrigley Field fans and not Cub fans, and that real Cub fans would loathe them more than I do. They didn't understand. Wow.

X-rays on Prior's elbow were negative, Cubs trainer Mark O'Neal said, but a source with the team said later Friday an MRI revealed a "slight" fracture. The Cubs will continue to evaluate Prior's injury to determine how much time he will miss.

Which probably means that the fracture isn's so slight...

he's probably done for the season. at the least, he will miss 2 months. that means he'll return in august when the team will probably be way out of contention. why would they bring him back if they have no idea how healthy he is and risk hurting him for an even longer period of time?


At the moment, their rotation looks like this;
Zambrano
Maddux
Rusch
Mitre
Wellemeyer (?)

If Dusty Baker is smart, he'll bring Ryan Dempster back into the rotation and make Joe Blow the closer again or have a bullpen-by-committee.

That looked bad! He GONE! It's a shame to see a good young pitcher get hurt like that, but he is a cub - so good riddance! I don't see anything keeping us from a sweep now at the end of June.

People are going to call you classless for posting this. They probably already have. The thread looks like it's already more than five pages long, and I don't have time to read the whole thing. People will probably think I'm classless, too, for what follows.

When good young players were making $20,000 to $50,000 a year (Vida Blue, $13,500 in his Cy Young season, 1971), I always felt bad for players who were hurt. Herb Score was a Yankee. Tony Conigliaro played in Boston. I read their stories and feel bad for them. I didn't feel bad for Albert Belle. If he had gone down while still with the Sox, I would have felt bad for the Sox, not Albert. I haven't felt bad for Magglio Ordonez since he signed for the big money under apparently false pretenses.

Prior's first professional contract set him up for life. Even if he suffers a career-ending injury, I can't feel bad for him. It's not like he even has to go to work for a living. If he did would probably get a job in the nebulous field of "sports journalism" and wouldn't be working for a living anyway.

I'm sure, though, Prior will be all right. He'll probably send another message to the White Sox this season. Maybe he'll visit WSI and print out the classless comments to inspire him.

(And maybe this is off-topic, but Don Pall does work for a living when he isn't announcing Sox games.)

Even though he is a Cub, Prior still has a world of talent and I can't how anyone can gloat over this. And this could happen to any Sox pitcher at any time. This was scary. I can't stand the Cubs, but I don't hope for injuries.

PaleHoseGeorge
05-28-2005, 08:19 AM
This might sound strange, but Prior's broken arm is actually a BLESSING for Dusty Baker and Sox Fans, too.

The Flubs weren't going anywhere this season and Dusty was being called out for what a dope of a manager he was. But now the season is sunk because the Messiah can't pitch and Dusty had no hand in him missing all these games. He broke his bone on a batted ball, not from Dusty's overuse.

The Lovable Losers have found their scapegoat (no pun intended) and as usual they'll remain blissfully ignorant to fix any of the real problems.

So everyone in Lovable Loserville can go along with the Cubune's charade, that the Flubs were simply doomed with "bad luck" and everything will be fine once everybody is healthy again. They're already saying it: Wait till next year!
:kukoo:

As a Sox Fan I'm not complaining. Flubbie delusions on this matter mean nothing will change for another year and I fully expect the Lovable Losers will pick up right where they left off next season with the same punchless offense, tender elbow Savior, "no big deal" hurtin' Messiah, and "online porn" Zambrano. LaToya will be gone, but I'm sure Hendry will find a suitable replacement to blow saves.
:roflmao:

Here's to 2006, guaranteed to be another great year to be a Sox Fan -- thanks in part to the ongoing delusions of the Flubs, their Lovable Loser rabble of fans, and of course that pisshole shrine to losing baseball "beeeautiful Wrigley Stadium!"

I never would wish injury of any kind on any ballplayer (even Sosa) because that is just classless. Instead of having them injured, I would MUCH rather have them stink it up at the plate or get lit up for 7 or 8 runs in one of their starts. That gives much greater satisfaction. Plus the Cub fans can't use injuries as an excuse if no one gets injured. I hope Prior is ok and that his career can continue. This guy just can't catch a break.

Here's an interesting theory submitted for discussion.

If you were the Cubs, would you consider trading Prior this off season?

Here's what I mean.

It is a fact that he has a world of talent...it's also a fact that he simply can't avoid injuries.

Prior has been on the DL five times in the past two seasons!

He may simply be one of those players (think Jim McMahon in a baseball uniform) who no matter what they do, can't stay healthy.

If the Cubs deal him now there may still be a team out there willing to gamble and deal two or three good players for him....but another year or two of injuries and who in their right mind would give up anything for him?

And like last time The Messiah was hurt, we had to make sure we distinguished between "im glad hes hurt" and "I dont want him to personally suffer". I'll stand right where I stood before, I dont wish the guy dead or anything ridiculous like that. However, his success always comes to the detriment of the White Sox (overhype, ignoring SOX successes, printing more negative stories about the SOX etc etc) The Messiah took the Cubs for $10 Million bucks people. Not counting the countless endorsements hes already inked. He is already sitting pretty the rest of his life ......... I dont care. Im not going to wish him luck. and im not going to wish bad health either. Heck, if that was him in a car wreck on the side of the road, im the first guy to get out and help him out of his solid gold Hummer. Id probably tell him it serves him right he wrecked his gold Hummer because of all the Champaign and Caviar in the front seat. Patbooyah is right, he has been quietly a JERK in this town, and walks about with an air of Somebody-owes-me attitude, but guess what, hes getting a permanent Get-out-of-jerk-jail-free Card ................because hes a CUB.

I feel bad not because he's hurt, but because his injuries never seem to be his fault...Yesterday was a freak incident, and the fact that they trusty-in-dusty to control the team cant be good for ANYBODY

However, I definitely do not feel anything for his employers or their "fans"...This team was going nowhere whether Prior (Wood and Garciaparra) are healthy or not...With all those guys, the Cubs are still no better than a .500 team!

If they try to bring him back this season, which is already a lost cause, then I see no reason why we should feel sorry for anybody involved if another injury occurs...If the cubs didnt learn the first 3 times, who's fault is it if their guys keep going down? Sure isnt ours, whether we hope for it or not

Again, im not happy hes hurt and I surely wouldnt wish injury on anybody, but I definitely see this as yet another "serves you right" situation for that entire organization, not solely prior

the truth is, if this were a sox player getting injured, cub fans would take every opportunity to yell at all of us and say, "so and so... HE GONE!"


so i took advantage of the situation and to every cubs fan at work today i was saying, "whats that you say about prior, hawk? what?? ohhh, HE GONE!"

and i teased a ton of them saying, "hey, at least you can have a song for your new ace; 'OOO-EEE-OOO, SERRRR-GIOOOOO! OOO-EEE-OOO, SERRR-GIOOOO!"

they laughed at it and just said that the sox were beginning to fade.

see, it won't get many people pissed off and it shouldn't; unless you're related to the guy or are a close friend of his.

Prior is a douchebag.

With that said, I don't wish this on anyone. That was scary. Chilling to the spine.

Looks like he will miss 4-6 weeks according to the Flubs. I guess they will be lucky to have him next year about this time.

That's one heck of a streak they got going. I figure "streak" to mean weeks or months, not seasons. I guess they are on a bad WS winning streak also.

Can't he just heal himself ? He is the "Messiah", you know.

I just find it a very strange coincidence that this is the very same elbow that Dusty Baker sprinkled with Holy Water earlier this season.

Proving once again God is NOT A CUBS FAN!!!! :D:

Since Prior went down, the Cubs haven't lost a game. I wish somebody would wake the hell up and beat them. Like the rest of you, I'm soooooo sick of them winning.
