    Porcello Trade Thread

    The Detroit News' Lynn Henning expects Rick Porcello to be traded following the re-signing of Anibal Sanchez.
    Henning notes that Drew Smyly has the leg up on Porcello for the No. 5 starter job, and the Tigers "won't warehouse a starter in the minors." The 24-year-old right-hander projects to make between $4-5 million in arbitration this winter and is under team control through 2014. Porcello has reportedly received plenty of trade interest, mostly from National League clubs, though CBS Sports' Danny Knobler says the Rangers could be a possibility.

    3 team trade where Texas ends up with Porcello and Upton, Detroit gets Andrus, and Arizona gets some prospects or something?

    That's about the only trade I'd like to see. Wouldn't shock me to see Porcello and Boesch packaged together somewhere either.

    Zander, you read my mind completely. This would make us the best team in the league and make our defense better also.

    I don't see the 3 team trade between dbacks rangers and tigers going down. the dbacks were only going to give up upton to texas for andrus, which texas wanted no part of that deal. So i dont see how you just throw tigers in the mix and now both teams are fine trading away their very young talented all star players. The rangers are not stupid either. They are hurting for offense and pitching, after this shocking off-season so far for them. They will not trade another one of their best players to help a team that is already better then them. If this happened i would love it! but trying to think about this logically and put myself in the rangers gm spot i sure as hell would not help a team that is already better than mine.

    I'd love to ship him to FL in a package for Stanton.

    Won't happen though.

    Rockies or Pirates is the most likely destination.

    I'd still really rather just keep Porcello AND Smyly, because I'm kind of greedy like that, and don't want to depend on Crosby if someone gets hurt.

    oh yea, that trade seems likely to happen....

    If he is traded, I wouldn't expect it to be a big time player unless the tigers also give up someone else.

    The hot trade rumor a while ago was Hannahan for Porcello Maybe they pick that back up?

    I honestly believe they want Rondon to close. Hopefully Porcello gets traded for a MIF prospect that just needs a year in AAA for seasoning to take over for Peralta next year.

    I'm sticking with Porcello to the Pirates for Hanrahan. There will be some minor leaguers involved as well from both sides.

    Jim Bowden...Jerry Springer might as well have reported the the interest. Bowden blows. Not to mention his information sucks. I wouldn't bite on anything that guy says. He doesn't know spit. Bowden swallows.

    Porcello, Villarreal, Fields, PTBN

    for

    Betencourt, Eric Young, and Trevor Story from Colorado

    Then we also sign Diaz the Cuban SS. Betencourt becomes our closer this year with Rondon waiting in the wings next year. Young becomes our RH platoon and since he's a switch hitter can pinch hit anytime. Story is a top SS prospect. He and Diaz can battle it out for who stays at SS and who plays 2B next year.
