Alright, alright, we can't get things moving with you so backed up on this topic. Here, have some yogurt. Better? Good! Now I have to ask you to draft a guy who's only $6...

Pregame 8: Detroit Tigers at San Diego Padres

The Tigers (5-2) are in San Diego, where it’s always baseball weather, for three against the Padres (3-6). Rick Porcello makes the start for Detroit, facing Andrew Cashner. Obviously, not much history between these two clubs, but there was one famous series (famous if you’re a Detroit or San Diego fan, anyway) back in 1984. I followed the Tigers’ magical season game in and...

Rick Porcello is working on this new pitch… (VIDEO)

via mlb.com During Tuesday’s spring training game against the Braves, Tigers pitcher Rick Porcello had BJ Upton down 0-2 and thought it would be the perfect time to break out the new pitch he has been working on. And before you watch the video, let me tell you that Porcello gave up ten hits and six earned runs in six innings.  That should tell you how good this pitch was.  Now you may watch.

Videos: Rick Porcello’s Mound Blooper Part of Awful Day Against Atlanta

Let’s just say that Rick Porcello is not quite in regular-season form yet … Your browser does not support iframes. That blooper more or less summed up Porcello’s Tuesday afternoon against the Braves. The Tigers’ No. 4 starter allowed 10 hits, six runs and two homers in six innings of a 12-3 loss. Porcello will not start again until Detroit comes north for the regular season...

Porcello serious about contributing to Tigers' success

LAKELAND, Fla. -- Rick Porcello is awfully businesslike for a 25-year-old. But that's because he's serious about his pitching and contributing to getting the Tigers back to the playoffs. Porcello has already won 61 games in the big leagues despite his youth. But he's striving to be better. Porcello started his first spring game Thursday at home against the Atlanta Braves...

Rick Porcello should not rhyme with poor fellow

The Detroit Tigers have never had a love affair with Rick Porcello. He does not strike guys out like Verlander. He does not have plus stuff. His name comes up often in trade rumors. He is a pitcher that does not satisfy a general manager trying to win it all. And yet, Rick Porcello is probably as good a fit in Detroit as just about any other fourth or fifth starter you can find...

Detroit Tigers rumors: Giancarlo Stanton edition

This offseason I’ve well documented how the Detroit Tigers are in a mode of win at any cost. No contract seems too lofty. No prospect is likely safe. Well entrenched players may not have the job security they’d hope to. The Detroit Tigers see their time as now. Fortunately, the Tigers have a nucleus of players that are under team control for years to come. The window is now,...

Detroit Tigers rumors: is JJ Hardy the right target?

Sourced rumors are starting to swirl that the Detroit Tigers are engaged in talks to move Rick Porcello in a 3-way deal. The other teams rumored to be involved are the Chicago Cubs and Baltimore Orioles. If a deal like this were to go down, it means that the Tigers are most likely targeting Baltimore’s JJ Hardy to be the new shortstop in Motown. The obvious questions that follow...

Detroit Tigers rumors: and Porcello goes to…

In 6 days, the Detroit Tigers’ Rick Porcello will turn 24 years old. He already has 4 full season of MLB service under his belt. He plays for a team suddenly with one too many starters and an infield defense that doesn’t suit his skill set as a pitcher. Add it all up and Porcello is being shopped hard by the Tigers and might have a new home by the time the ball drops in New York...
