Rick Porcello Has To Start Game 1
That's why I'm all in on Porcello Game 1 of the playoffs. Red Sox will win the division. As much as they annoy the hell out of me with their inconsistency, I just don't think there's enough time for them to screw it up. So they should be able to set their rotation. Pretty Ricky is my guy. His competitiveness is way higher than Price. I just think he's got way more mental toughness. I say that about a guy with no real playoff track record but Price has one and it works against him. Porcello hasn't really pitched a bad game all year. That's how I view an ace. 6 months ago if we said Porcello was our best pitcher you'd have visions of Farrell and Dombrowski packing their bags. But that's where we re with a tem that's going to win over 90 games. Now of course Farrell will screw this up somehow and make this irrelevant. But until then, give the ball to Rick.
