  • Prior a one time Yankee?

    While I was looking up the averages for MArk Prior for wins in a season I noticed he was drafted by the Yankees in 1998 and then selected by the Cubs in 2001.

    There is the link. Just look under the bio info.

    Just a note to all the active members of BBF, I consider all of you the smartest baseball people I have ever communicated with and love everyday I am on here. Thank you all!

      You freaked me out because I just wrote a bio for for AJ's site.

        I just looked at basball cube..if I can find a second source that states that, I'll have to change the bio.

          Please don't ever post a topic with the title Prior a Yankee again. I thought you meant he had been traded! Don't do that to me!

            I AGREE 100%

            I am editing the title a bit, I hope that is ok..

            FYI.. the old title said "Prior a Yankee" I am sure most will agree it is a bit misleading..

                Prior was drafted by the Yankees but did not sign with them, instead choosing to go to college.

                Oddly enough, I never bought a Sosa jersey, even during his best years.

                  BA only lists the team who drafted and signed the player, not previous drafts in which he did not sign.
                  A lot of people say this honor validates my career, but I didn't work hard for validation. I didn't play the game right because I saw a reward at the end of the tunnel. I played it right because that's what you're supposed to do, play it right and with respect. If this validates anything, it's that learning how to bunt and hit and run and turning two is more important than knowing where to find the little red light at the dug out camera. - Ryne Sandberg

                    Folks it's true it's true, Prior was drafted by the Yankees as a supplemental pick in 1998 (43rd overall) for losing their 1st rounder Tyrell Godwin in 1997. But the Yanks waited too long to offer Mark a deal and didn't offer him enough money to forgo his college career.


                    Here's a link to a story by the New York Daily News entitled "Yankees regret not signing Prior"

                        Other than throwing tons of cash at him, I don't think there is anything more they could have done. At least they drafted him.

                          prior was acually drafted by the marlins, then traded to the cubs for dontrelle willis, he never played a game with the marlins, and usually sources dont keep a close eye on those things, so thats why it dosent show him being drafted by the marlins
                          Only certain people are given a gift, some of those people givens baseball gifts work hard and turn their gift into a talent, then some of those people with talent progress into having skill, and with more progress and very hard work they turn into a pro....if you work hard any thing can happen....even if you live in ND

                              MLB.com has every player ever drafted at it's site. Just use the above link and then select the year and the type of draft. It includes those drafted that never signed as well.
