I LOVE This Quote From Rick Porcello

“If we don’t get it done, we’re not going to throw another pitch for four months, and everything we did the entire year is over,” Porcello said. “So I’d much rather throw the s— out of my arm now and have it feel s—-y for three months with a ring on my hand then hem and haw about if I’m good to go and sit there feeling good the entire offseason. This is it. This is do or die.”

Talk about a guy who has embraced his role. According to Sports Illustrated, Porcello was a little rattled when called upon in Game 1 of the ALDS, but he’s settled in nicely to the super utility bullpen role made famous by Cleveland’s Andrew Miller.  Whether its emergency middle relief in Game 1 of the ALDS, a Game 4 start or acting as setup man in Game 2 of the ALCS; Porcello is ready to do anything and everything to help the team win.

This is a guy who would have every right to bitch about being used as a bullpen guy after winning the Cy Young just 24 months ago.

But instead you saw a guy that was FIRED UP after shutting down the defending champs in the 8th inning and securing the lead for Craig Kimbrel. This team has been criticized the better part of two years for being devoid of emotion and leadership so this was a welcome sight. Doesn’t matter if it’s the 1st inning or the 8th, Porcello is screaming like a psycho regardless and is ready to ball.
