Rick Porcello is Heading to the Mets
Rick Porcello has reportedly agreed to join the Mets with a 1 year/$10 million deal.
The Mets needed to replace Zack Wheeler, and the former Cy Young winning Porcello just happened to be available to join forces with the likes of Noah Syndergaard, Marcus Stroman, Jacob deGrom, and Steven Matz. Whether he’ll be helpful or not will remain to be seen, as Porcello’s stuff isn’t quite what it used to be. He’s struggled a lot over the last few seasons, but perhaps being around talented arms like the back to back Cy Young winning deGrom might be just what he needs.
Here’s hoping Ricky can control his arm and his temper in New York. Actually, wait. I kind of love it when he gets pissed, so I amend my statement: may he control his arm but lose his shit once in a while.
