That sounds like Scherzer too. One of the best al pitchers (in second half at least) - terrible era. I remember being shocked by his xfip numbers.

Scherzer missed a lot more bats.

Oh my yes, not really comparing the two beyond the fact that their defense sucked.

Yeah I agree that Scherzer would be a dominant pitcher (if you can't say that already) somewhere else. I just can't see Porcello turning a new defense behind him into much more than a 5th starter.

This trade deal has not been brought up by either organization, but it is food for thought.

It's not really a rumor if someone just makes it up out of thin air.

That is a hilariously stupid idea for a trade, especially when you throw in Taillon.

I didn't realize Marcum was a free agent, that wouldn't be a good Karstens replacement.

It looks like they're wearing 3 shirts (red vest, black shirt under that, and longer yellow sleeves).

I'm sure they were used in spring training but I don't remember those jerseys at all. Wow, they're awful.

It was a "Turn Ahead the Clock" promotion throughout the MLB during the 1999 season. They actually wore it.
