Stellar work, Adam!
The guy physically kind of reminds me of former Nasty Boy/Red reliever Rob Dibble- but he REALLY reminds me of a Baltimore Orioles starter/reliever from a few years ago (and so far as I know, who didn't last all that long) named Rocky Biddle. But if Pryor sits at 96-97, he throws considerably harder than Biddle did.
Pryor also seems to me that he has the potential to acquire unwanted pounds pretty easily- heavy trunk, mesomorphic build. May be something for him to watch as he gets older, and the ol' metabolism starts playing cruel tricks on a guy.
But, yeah...that velocity WILL play. Bet he's in a Mariner uniform by July 31st.

TONS of pitching! the rumor mill has Seattle not only trading Vargas, League, Olivo, maybe even one of the big 3 in Hultzen, Paxton or Walker could be traded. The idea would be too add the bats we are missing. I like the way the M's are going.
Next year we have the potential to have one of the best young lineups in the game. With Franklin being the starting SS next season. Pulling away form the wishful thinking of the group mentioned who is likely to be dealt 1st?

There are ZERO rumors out there anywhere that have the Mariners trading any of the big three. Perhaps you made something up that involved one of them, but there are no such rumors.

Noticed T Walker left after 2+ innings tonite. Is he OK?

Is Nick Franklin hurt?

Haven't heard any big three rumors. There is absolutely no reason to trade any of the three. Let them develop and become the big four with Felix headlining.
If anyone gets traded it will be Vargas, Millwood or Beaven.
And about SS. I think we are more likely to see Carlos T. as our starting SS next year more then Nick F. I think Nick has to go through his AA lumps this year and AAA lumps next year. Carlos is proving that he can handle AAA although it's early. I expect to see Carlos in a M's uniform by the end of the year.

I would not be against dealing Paxton for the right bat. Walker/Hultzen need to stay though. I would also try and get Vargas locked up. Not an overpowering pitcher but very valuable and consistent.
