Both Porcello and Samardzija have absolutely sucked through 3 starts (era's are 7.56 and 6.16 respectively). Which one is more likely to get their crap together and come back from this awful start? Or will they just suck this year? I looked, and they both had ERA's over 6 in spring training this year, too. So that is concerning.
I'm debating whether I should cut one, cut both, or keep both. Mike Leake and Ian Kennedy are the free agents I may be able to replace one or both of them with. Both are off to good starts. Yes, I am entertaining the idea of cutting the reigning AL Cy Young award winning and replacing him with Mike Leake. Thoughts?
I think Porcello has had Tommy John...but Samardzija hasn't. Drop Samardzija.
