Hmm. Seems Senor(ita) Prior has magically managed to shrink his timetable. This could be a couple things: The Padres could be simply overestimating the rate of recovery for Prior, or Prior himself could possibly not have been as hurt as he'd been letting on. Personally I think it's the former, but if Prior actually was dragging his heals on his injury simply to spite the Cubs last year, I'd be somewhat peeved.
But, all in all, I'm rooting for him to be pitching by May. Perhaps I've decided to take the high road, wish Mark all the best at his new job, etc.....nahhhhh. My real reason? San Diego visits Wrigley May 12th-15th. How sweet would it be for Prior to make his first start for the Padres at Wrigley, only to be booed by the fans and shelled by the lineup?
OOOH, or better yet, DLee could charge the mound. Just tell him it's Chris Young pitching.
