    Yeah, he'll end up being another Greg Maddux.

    But truthfully, the Cubs have thrown enough money at him and have gotten Mike Hampton-like production from him. If San Diego wants to pay him for a year of rehab, let them.

    That is usually how things work for the cubs.

    Re: Prior Signs With Padres

    Rest assured he will be back with the Cubs. Of course that will be in 2018 after he has won 5 Cy Young awards and 3 World Series.

    Re: Prior Signs With Padres

    I read an interesting discussion with a low minors scout saying how Prior basically set himself up for injury with his throwing motion, as his elbow comes above his shoulder.

    I have heard this recently too, but when he broke into the minors everyone said he would last forever because of his "superior" mechanics.
