Reds Sign Mark Prior
The Reds signed Mark Prior to a minor league deal, according to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer. The move reunites Prior with manager Dusty Baker, who managed Prior early in his career with the Cubs.
“He called me and ... asked for a chance,” Baker told Fay. "He feels like he has some unfinished business."
Critics often point to Baker's handling of Prior as one of the reasons the promising right-hander dealt with so many injuries. Despite the perception that Baker mis-managed Prior, they have remained close and speak a couple of times each year, Fay reports.Trade Bucket: Hidden Content

I think Baker really ruined Prior and had a hand in all the problems Kerry Wood had. If they would of had a different manager I believe they both would have had better careers.Hidden Content Baseball Fan For Life
