Video: Prior's battle to join Sox
ESPNBoston.com’s Gordon Edes and Joe McDonald discuss Mark Prior's odds of joining the Red Sox this season and Daniel Bard's chances of joining the bullpen.
McDonald reports that Prior said last week that it was easier getting to the big leagues the first time around. McDonald notes that Prior has put up decent numbers in Triple-A Pawtucket, and thinks that Fenway Park could be in Prior's future, provided he stays healthy.
As for Bard? Joey Mac -- having said since spring training that he should be in the bullpen -- says Bard will be the Red Sox closer by season's end.
