Would not be shocked by a Victor Martinez steroid headline. I won't accuse him, but he's been a fantastic hitter his entire career and all of a sudden he's a 30+ homer guy as he turns 35? Just the weirdness of the numbers. I hope not, it'd taint this era of Tigers baseball... but it wouldn't surprise me.

It's not that crazy. He's been a 20-25 HR and 30-40 2B guy pretty much his entire career. He's a great hitter, always has been and he's knocked a few of those doubles over the wall this year.

Brad Ausmus cost Detroit a game tonight...again. I understand that a manager can't make players play better..but he sure as hell can put a team in a better position to win that this guy does...damn.

For some reason Ian Kinsler worries me more than VMart does...do I have any reason for this? No...just a feeling.

Someone queue up the firing line for Mike Matheny. #loser

That World Champ Dewitt handed him seems to be pretty distant now.

With Rick Porcello a legitimate Cy Young contender this year, and primed to spend his prime on an offensive powerhouse, Chris Woj's prediction is looking better every day...

Considering what his peripherals look like, maybe he holds an ERA around 3.00 for the next 5-8 years....

I get that this is pure conjecture, I get the outrageous idea of asking if a guy with less than 70 wins can win 300... But he's also very young, plays for a winning team, makes all his starts every year, and is good enough to spend 20 years winning about 15 games. He's just the sort of guy you could one day look at and set up the argument "Is he the worst 300 game winner in baseball history?" - mind you it'd be nothing to sneeze at, he'd still have had to have been a fine ballplayer for a long time... but I think he's got a shot.

I think I just convinced myself. C'mon Rick Porcello! You can do it! Be the worst 300 game winner in baseball history!
But I will say that a Cy Young or two will take him out of the running for worst 300 game winner.

People forget how young Ricky P was when he came up with Detroit... He has a very good shot at 300 wins.

Re: 2016 MLB Regular Season Thread Where We Talk About Baseball All Season

Porcello will probably still need to pitch at least 15 more years to hit 300 wins. Still seems like a somewhat remote possibility.

I think that, barring injury, he'll be at the 165-170 win mark by the end of his age 30 season. After that he just needs to sign with a contender and then have a bunch of traditional Rick Porcello years (i.e. 13-15 wins per season) and he'll do it by 40.
