Bobby Hill, playing second, and batting second for the Cubs today. He fielded a grounder in the first, and grounded out in the first.

Mark Prior watch - I have it at 2 weeks and counting before he makes his Wrigley debut.

I think he gets called up Wednesday or Thursday, but that may just be me being too hopeful.

When my time on earth is done,
and my activities have passed.
I want them to bury me upside down,
so my critics can kiss my ass.

Prior is supposed to pitch today (Saturday) in Iowa. With the injuries the Cubs have had (Zambrano and Gonzalez) I would expect them to call up Prior sometime this week. I can't see the Cubs pulling him from his start today, which is probably close to sold out to pitch for a team that is basically out of the playoff race.

According to the ESPN radio Baseball show today, Prior is pitching tomorrow.

The funny thing is that he didn't want to call in, since it was the day before his start.

On THAT level, he's ready for the show.

Please inform me, who is this Prior? I've heard of him, but I don't recall hearing him being the biggest thing sense sliced bread. Is he the one to help lead the cubbies ot the World Series again?

I just graduated from TV-Broadcasting. An educated redneck? WHAT?!

Mark Prior was drafted by the Cubs out of USC last year. He is widely considered to be the best College pitcher ever. In spring training this year, he was dominating, with the exception of 1 start. Plus, he has good mechanics, wso the likliehood of him tearing up his elbow ala' Kerry Wood is reduced.

He is one of several top notch prospects that the Cubs have developed in their Farm system, currently ranked #1 (or 2) by Baseball America. Gee... only took them 94 years to figure out to rebuild in the farm system. Other top prospects include Bobby Hill (2b, just called up), David Kelton (3B0, Hee Sop Choi (1B)
