The Onion: “Mark Prior Just Needs to Stop by Hospital for a Sec”

The satirical Onion website has a painfully funny article about former Cubs pitcher Mark Prior. The article states that "Padres pitcher Mark Prior informed teammates Monday that he just has to pop in to the hospital for ‘one quick sec’ to have Tommy John connective tissue reconstruction surgery performed on his right arm." While Onion roasts Prior every spring, it’s still a shocker to see Mark Prior’s name associated with a ballclub other than the Cubs. It’s just another sign that the Sosa/Wood/Prior Cubs era that reached its pinnacle in 2003 has officially run its course.
