Rick Porcello must embrace that sinking feeling

CHICAGO — With the Red Sox taking the day off before opening a three-game interleague series against the surging Mets tonight in New York, let’s delve deeper into Rick Porcello’s stellar start Wednesday night against the White Sox.Porcello threw 94 pitches over seven scoreless, walk-free innings. Of those, 51 were sinkers, his signature pitch for years with the Tigers. He threw only 14 four-seam fastballs, 13 curveballs and 12 changeups while sprinkling in four cutters, according to PITCHf/x data available at Brooks Baseball.

Lauber: Porcello returns in vintage form

CHICAGO — To hear Dave Dombrowski tell it, money was the main reason he traded Rick Porcello to the Red Sox last December.Ironic, isn’t it?Nine months later, Dombrowski is eight days into his tenure as the Sox’ president of baseball operations. And money — specifically the $82.5 million contract extension Porcello signed in April — might be the biggest obstacle to trading him again, not that Dombrowski would dare after watching him pitch last night.

Porcello Shines In 3-0 Sox Wins Over Sale And Pale Hose

(AP Photo)Rick Porcello came off the DL and pitched like he was worth $82.5 million. The right-hander hurled seven brilliant innings—giving up just five hits, striking out five and walking none in a 3-0 win. Porcello had been out with a right triceps strain since July 29th. Boston's offense was paced—once again—by Travis Shaw, who clobbered a two-run HR (his seventh of the year in just 30 games). If the first-baseman played a full 162 games, he would be on pace for 38 HRs. Xander Bogaerts had two more hits, and Josh Rutledge hit a sacrifice fly to plate the third run. The win is all the...

Red Sox 3, White Sox 0: Rick Porcello beats Chris Sale (actually)

Rick Porcello went toe-to-toe with Chris Sale Wednesday night, and left with a win. Well, that's a headline. In a game started by Rick Porcello and Chris Sale, Rick Porcello was the one coming away with the win. This is a thing that happened. And what's more, it didn't happen just because the Red Sox do that thing where they beat up on a very good pitcher. In fact, saying that Porcello beat Sale is kind of misleading, because he didn't really outpitch him, he just happened to be the away pitcher, which means that when the game went to the bullpens in the eighth, the Red Sox hit before...
