Jerry Remy: Rick Porcello Must Find Sinkerball, ‘Keep Infielders Busy’ (Video)

Rick Porcello is looking for a bounce-back performance Friday night against the Baltimore Orioles. The right-hander got knocked around pretty good in his last start that also came against the O’s, giving up eight runs on 12 hits in the Red Sox’s 8-3 loss. Porcello gave up two long home runs in the loss, which is uncharacteristic for the ground-ball pitcher, who hasn’t allowed more...

Rick Porcello – Feeling the Pressure

The lack of an ace continues to dog the Red Sox rotation.. Rick Porcello, Wade Miley, Clay Buchholz, and Justin Masterson all have 5.50- plus ERA’s, and Joe Kelly’s is over 4. The team does not seem to want to look outside the organization, at least for the present. According the the Globe’s Nick Cafardo, Cole Hamels will still command a high price-perhaps including Mookie...

Why Rick Porcello's big deal is a big deal

Contrary to the belief of many, Marvin Miller did not awaken from the dead and scream out, “Now that’s too much money” upon hearing of the contract extension provided right-hander Rick Porcello by the Red Sox.

Porcello’s extension raises eyebrows, but good fit for Sox

The Boston Red Sox surely didn’t acquire pitcher Rick Porcello last December with the intention of him being a one-year rental for them. Even if general manager Ben Cherington traded a surplus piece in outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, who was unlikely to re-sign with Boston, a 26-year-old starter with six MLB seasons on his résumé looked to be a key part of the Red Sox rotation...
