    I honestly wish I could have voted for all three. Even the hits that Rick surrendered were on the ground, which is a big improvement. Despite the reduced velocity he is finally keeping the sinker low-which is key. The movement was also much better.
    For Porcello to succeed this needs to happen more frequently.
    Pretty solid road trip, big series with the wrong sox on deck.

      “big series with the wrong sox on deck.” – Really? 19 games in and this is a big series? No it isn’t. Save the hyperbole for much later in the year please, when it might actually be deserved.

        Regardless of what the date is, all division games are big. When you consider the fact that Detroit traditionally finishes just .500 in the seventy-ish games played against AL Central foes. Will it make or break the season, not likely but at what point do games become “big” to you? If your philosophy is in September than I strongly object. You can’t win a division in April but you can certainly put your self in one helluva hole by not taking things serious.

        I appreciate your comments and I’m not trying to be rude but regardless of the date, I’m all about beating up on AL Central foes….Especially the White Sox!

        No hyperbole, but don’t tell me you don’t hate those Sox…

      1 win in April = 1 win in July = 1 win in September

      ALL games against division opponents are huge, especially against teams that are supposed to be in competition for the title.
