Chat wrap: Rob Neyer, May 30.
Darrin (Chicago): In 50 years will Mark Prior be in the same league as Cy Young, Tom Seaver and Sandy Koufax? I ask this because he is so dominant and mature at such a young age. It's really amazing!(ESPN.com)
Bruce Markusen's Cooperstown Confidential for May 30. Players who wore glasses, how to fix the Yankees, and more. (Baseball Primer)
Bi-Weekly Review: N.L. Central. "The Cubs get a chance to catch their breath with the Devil Rays coming to town, and really need to avoid looking ahead to the Bronx Bombers' first visit to Wrigley Field since the 1938 World Series. The pitchers are starting to show some signs of wear and tear, and since they are the strength of the team there's cause for concern there." (Baseball Primer)
Bi-Weekly Review: N.L. West. "The Colorado Rockies should lobby the league to be the 'Home Team.' They are simply destroying teams at Coors and getting destroyed on the road. This has always been the case with the Rockies and that’s for a significant player turnover." (Baseball Primer)
