JOLIET Mark Prior lost off the field Thursday when a Will County judge ruled the Cubs pitcher owes nearly $31,000 to a Naperville store that paid him to sign autographs for fans.

I hope he doesn't injure his arm writing out the check.

HE'LL PROBABLY CHARGE FOR THE AUTOGRAPH ON THE CHECK!He'll probably sign 30,000 separate $1.00 checks, sell them to suckers on eBay for $50 each, pay off the $30,000 judgment, and pocket a profit of $1,470,000.

Or maybe the store will get a check with a simulated signature.

The judge, however, said Prior didn't act badly and blamed the store for much of the problem that day.

Contract didn't specify that he would talk, shake hands, or pose for pictures. Therefore he wouldn't. Great Guy!

10-year old Flubbie fan: "You're my favorite player, Mr. Prior. Can my Dad take a picture of the two of us together? That would be awesome!"

Mark Prior: (slowly shakes head with icy stare) "..."
