Dear Rick Porcello,
We understand that we can only ask so much. We understand that you are but one man, and that until very recently, that one man wasn't particularly good at baseball this year.
That being said, if you could go nine innings so that the bullpen didn't have a chance to see the light of day? Well, we'd really appreciate it.
Also, please don't allow a bunch of homers.
