I watched the first part of the Reds-Cubs game before tuning over to the Mariners, and I’d like to say that this is not a good way to watch baseball games. Prior makes other pitchers seem like poor substitutes. Watching Pineiro I was thinking “yeah, that’s a good fastball, but it’s not one of Prior’s 94-mph darts. Yeah, that curve broke, but Prior’s dies like it was shot in mid-air. Yeah, his delivery is good, but it’s not as smooth as Prior’s.”
My back still hurts from that 13-inning marathon in the evening cold on Sunday.
