Gee, here's a surprise: Mark Prior is hurt again. Prior strained his oblique muscle during BP. It always amazes me how these super-fit athletes pull hammys and other muscles so much. That said, I'm skeptical of a guy who has been hit around not wanting to take the bump again for a brutal team. On the other hand, I've had the same injury he has--under several more layers of adipose--and it is a tough injury to heal.
Dusty had this to say: "I know everybody else wants us to go to Iowa [to call up Rich Hill], maybe they'll get their choice. But be careful what you wish for, right? Wasn't that what everyone was saying just [Saturday]?"
I am very careful for what I wish. Calling up a top pitching prospect for a team that has lost 54 games at the ASB sounds exactly like my wishes right now. Guzman too. And more Marmol! I have some other wishes too Dusty. I think they will be fulfilled sooner rather than later.
