How's that for a free agent, motherf'ers?? Mark F'ing Prior, baby!! I just high fived myself 8 times in a row after hearing the news.
Cliff Lee, Schmiff Lee. Who needs that boring, rosin-hatted d-bag now? Look at Prior's numbers. 18-6 record, 211.1 innings pitched with 10.4 K/9, 2.43 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 179 ERA+, 6.2 WAR. That'll get it done for sure!
I mean, yeah, those numbers are from 2003, but still. It's reasonable to expect Prior to come close to that this year after having not pitched since 2006, right?
