    Does anybody have any realistic idea of when Porcello could pitch his first game with the Tigers? 2009? 2010?

    My personal guess is a 2010 callup in the later part of the season.

    yay for High socks, Porcello!

    I hope they don’t rush him up to the bigs just because we are so curious about him.

    PS – is Rick Zumaya a pitcher too?

    Zumaya’s little brother is a pitcher. He threw for the GCL Tigers this year.

    I hope they handle Porcello better then they’ve been handling their minor leaguers lately.

    Mike,

    I assume you’re talking about Miller and Maybin specifically? I know they are the most valuable minor leaguers at the moment, and I share in your frustration, but otherwise I haven’t had a big problem with the handling of other prospects. Except maybe De La Cruz who they can’t decide if he’s a starter or reliever.

    They’ve taken a nice approach with Jurrjens. They were right to skip Hollimon a level. Placing Worth at Lakeland seemed aggressive, but he responded well.

    They did fine with Verlander, Zumaya, and Granderson as well.

    I don’t disagree with testing young talent when the trade market isn’t brimming with options.

    Miller and Maybin are not worse for wear.
