Interesting article by Rob Neyer on Mark Prior sent to me by Ron. It is interesting to note how poorly the great college pitchers have performed. I would have guessed their success would have been better than around .500 but I suppose this also validates The Baseball Prospectus mantra TINSTAAPP ("there is no such thing as a pitching prospect"). I do agree that Prior looks better than anyone on the list of 18 both because of his results and because of his mechanics and maturity. All of us Cubs fans are just hoping that his archilles problem can be cured by rest although I'm not holding my breath.
