Today is March first and to date I have only heard of Prior throwing once, that being fifteen pitches last Friday. I just spent about ten minutes downloading Spring Training pictures from chicagosports.com – Kerry Wood is all over them but there were only two of Prior. So I wonder what the real deal is – Prior says he’s healthy but I sure don’t see him practicing. Anybody heard of reports that Prior is doing anything except the towel drill?

Update:
The Cubbies won their Cactus League opener powered by the pitching of Carlos Zambrano and some very effective smallball. Included were a bunt basehit by Pierre and RBIs by Hairston, Lee, Pie and Ramirez. Michael Wuertz got the win when pinch-runner Angel Pagan scored on a fielder’s choice by Jose Reyes. Cubs pitcher Brian Corey gave up all seven Oakland runs; what is it with the Cubs and that name?
