  • Prior Opines on Cards Pitching

    There are three obvious reasons why the expectations are perennially high for Cubs pitching. Their names are Prior, Kerry Wood and Carlos Zambrano.

    "We are in a unique situation in that when we are all healthy , we have three guys who probably can be No. 1s at any place,'' Prior said.

    That's part of why Prior doesn't see a huge gap in 2006 between runaway division winner St. Louis and the Cubs. "What's the gap between us and the Cardinals?'' he said. "It's a matter of staying healthy and getting a couple of key things that change the dynamics of our team. Then we'll be off and running.''

    Defense, situational hitting and the bullpen seem the main dynamics that need change.

    "Fundamentally, the Cardinals play good and their defense is solid,'' Prior said. "But it's funny. Everyone talks about their pitching [No. 1 in ERA in the league]. Look at their numbers and [Chris] Carpenter is the only one. They don't have anything that's too bad, but they got middle-of-the-road, average ERAs. But they play defense, and when they need to get a guy in, they get him in. We all need to do our part and play better. Like in 2003, when we had a couple of veteran guys that made sure we did it and we put ourselves in position to win the last couple of years.''

    At least the Cards "middle of the road" pitchers can stay off the DL.

        so I guess the Cards have been healthy all season long too? Pitching only gets you so far but if you can't have the bat meet the ball then you got something to work on

        Walker
        Sanders
        Rolen
        Molina
        Gruz

        and so on

              They'll have plenty of time to get healthy while watching the Cardinals this fall.

                Didn't Prior say the same thing last year too?

                  Hey...Kerry Wood has more Cy Young Awards* than any member of the Cardinal pitching staff!

                  *of course, these are simulated Cy Young Awards that he won for his outstanding pitching in the numerous simulated games in which he's pitched. His simulated ERA and WHIP are way better than anyone else's, and he has far more simulated innings under his belt in the last two years than any other pitcher in MLB, so he was a lock.

                    Oh, and I almost forgot.

                    What's the difference between the 2006 Cardinals and the 2006 Cubs?



                    They'll have this guy...dividing clubhouses, wrecking arms and psyches, and mismanaging games for the tidy sum of $4 million dollars!

                      He says something like this every few months.

                            Yeah, that's the only difference. The scrubs and their fans never run out of excuses.
