Mark Prior Discussion

This whole Mark Prior situation is getting me a little fired up. It seems like he has no respect for this organization. This organization ahs stuck with him for years and has helped him out. I used to love Prior, i used to like him more than Wood. Now, he is being ungratful and ready to bail on this organization. Completely ridiculous. what do you all think? Im curious though as to why the Cubs just dont go to arbitration with him. I know the Cubs have rarely gone to arbitration with a player, but i do not see how the Cubs could not win the arbitration. He didn't pitch last year, and has barely pitched since 2003. I just dont understand how its possible that he could ever win in arbitration. You can't jsut trade talent like this away now. Personally, I say if he wont accept an option for 2009 then forget his  sorry ass. Its worth seeing what he can do when he comes back this year(wheather in June or even later). If he pitches well maybe the Cubs can talk contract with him then.
