We've previously mentioned the breach of contract action being brought by a Chicago-area sports memorabilia store against Chicago Cubs pitcher Mark Prior. The case is now at trial, and Prior was on the stand yesterday. The 25-year-old right-hander, who was 11-7 for the Northsiders last year, was paid $67,500 for the appearance, but allegedly left early and failed to meet his contractual obligations.
