Mark Prior is in The Best Shape of His Life

I read that long piece about Mark Prior over at the other day. It was good. But it was missing one key ingredient that this report from has:

Prior, who has suffered multiple shoulder injuries, is in the best physical shape of his life, according to two people who have seen him. He has strengthened the area around his shoulder capsule in an attempt to beat the problems that have plagued him for so many years.

After all of these years I don’t think anyone should bet much on Prior coming back. But if he does, it’ll be Team-BSOHL’s greatest accomplishment yet.

    Oh, for God’s sake, now it’s just turning into a Certificate of Achievement — perfect attendance, completed safety training, BSOHL…

      Certificatet of Achievement? More like Certificate of Participation.

    As I said before, even if he got hit by a bus that would still qualify as being the BSOHL.

    Guy is a mess.

    Craig, you should trademark BSOHL

    He and Kerry Wood were using the same wonder drugs. BSOHL my ass. They both look like they belong in a cancer wing at the local hospital.

      Yes, those professional baseball players sure are a sickly-looking bunch…

    If strengthening the area around your shoulder capsules worked, he’d have tried this after the first time it happened.

    I am willing to bet my house that he was in better shape when he was 18-20.

    I would be willing to bet he was in better shape before he met Dusty Baker
