Mark Prior a Dad Again!

Jason KronewitterContributor IJanuary 14, 2009

masculine, noun.

  1. (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."

Setback?

Dictionary.com (sorry) defines a setback as:

1. An unanticipated or sudden check in progress; a change from better to worse.

Unanticipated?

Unless you get your sports news only once every 10 years, probably not.

Sudden?

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.

Kudos, Padres.

Go Cubs.
