Actually, the majority of talk out of ST right now centers around Porcello - from what I have been reading and hearing both from local and national sources. Its not just Henning.
I guess I cant see Detroit with too many options right now. Is Robertson or Willis even remotely ready?
Who has consistantly been the best SP in ST? Its clearly been Porcello by a mile, and I remember the talk last yr that he was arguably the best SP in ST then too.
Dont get me wrong, I truly do not want to see Porcello rushed up, and if they had another option and didnt use it, I would be pretty mad. But the reality is that as of right now they cant seriously consider Willis, and Robertson has been as bad or worse than Willis.
With attendance what it was last yr, with it being a make or break yr for Leyland, with Porcello being the best SP in camp, and with one, possibly even 2 major holes in the rotation, I think the writing is on the wall: Porcello goes north with the Tigers.
