Mauer vs Prior

13 posts in this topic

I just read where the Cubs sent Mark Prior down to Triple A so he can regain his form. This move should shut up the Mauer bashers that said the Twins screwed up 4 years ago by picking Mauer over Prior.

I think they shut their mouths awhile ago. Even if Mauer didn't win the batting title I would rather have him then Prior just becuase he was able to play an entire season.

I will admit it, when we picked the home boy over Prior I was not happy, but a couple years ago, I took a 180 degree turn. I am hearing "experts" state that Prior will at best be a number 4 or 5 starter, he will never get the form back that he once had, has just missed too much of the game with all the injuries.

GO TWINS!!

Finally the truth comes out. Down here in Cubs land, people that thought Prior was next best thing since sliced bread have to think again. Well, he likely will end his career with around 100 wins,, and those wins will come in a injury plaugued career. Mauer has the best in front of him, and at this point and likely all points- is a no doubter between him and some stiff... well the differnce between Cub scouting and Twin scouting.

Those poor Cubbies, Geno should be chiming in any minute now. They have to have two of the biggest failures since the Lou Brock trade. Prior and Wood have been the Cubbie battle cry for the last how many years and they have failed miserably. Prior is just a wuss, sometimes you have to suck it up and go out there every 5th day. He has been Mr. IR his whole career, every twinge or hangnail had ole Mark on the DL. I have to believe that much of his problems are from the "magic juice", just take a look at his calves and that should tell you something. Just noodling here. Trying to get Geno to bite.....Here Geno Geno!!!!!!!!!!!

kerry wood had his good year, prior has had good games, but I am glad to see this team move on finally. the cubs have a good or better staff without those guys.

Is Zambrano the next Gimp/failure?

He's not pitching like a Numero Uno, but at least he is hitting like one-small consolation as that is.

I was another who wanted Prior instead of Joe . Mauer just scored and Prior is probably on the DL again . I was way wrong and thats why I'm plinkin' on the puter and not scouting players for the TWINS . Just a reminder Windy -thats how its spelled - T W I N S .

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
