- (papá) father
Whatever, it was a slow news day, so sue me.
I particularly enjoyed what the "Padres Blog” had to say about the signing.
"Signed for $1 million by the Padres last offseason, Prior suffered setbacks in his recovery from shoulder surgery and needed additional surgery that ended his season. He never appeared in a game, either in spring training or during the season."
Dictionary.com (sorry) defines a setback as:
1. An unanticipated or sudden check in progress; a change from better to worse.
Unless you get your sports news only once every 10 years, probably not.
If glaciers are sudden, then yes.
A change from better to worse?
His arm is still attached to his body so I guess technically it didn’t get any worse.
Good news is he only got signed to a minor league deal AND they also signed Chris Burke who dropped these numbers last year in a 165 AB.
.194, 20 Runs, 12 RBI, 2 HR.
