09:44 AM ET 07.10 | After the Tigers' 7-3 win tonight against the Twins, manager Jim Leyland said Rick Porcello was not going to be traded and that the 21-year-old pitcher would return to the Tigers for next weekend's series against the Indians in Cleveland. That series features a day-night doubleheader on July 17.

where ever he goes just make sure it is in the AL. I wouldn't want him to miss out on a chance to face the red sox and make Youk his beeyotch again. Youk must be the biggest p**** in the league. first gets tossed like a rag doll by a guy giving him about 50 pounds after throwing his helmet at him and then leaving a game after brushing off home plate.

That trade only made sense if they were able to sign Halladay to a long term contract, like the Phillies were able to.

Porcello is young. Most pitchers aren't that good at 21. Give him a few years to develop.

I don't trust anything that comes out of Leyland's mouth. Until Dombrowski speaks I agree with post #1, "Porcello is available."
