Leyland: “Not a chance” Porcello gets traded

Apparently Tigers manager Jim Leyland found out about the Rick Porcello trade rumor sometime before the game Friday night. He was not happy, and he went off on it after the game.

“There’s a rumor going around, I don’t know if anybody’s read it, about Rick Porcello being traded,” Leyland said. “I want to make this perfectly clear: That is a blatant lie. I don’t even know where it came from. That’s a blatant lie and it’s irreponsible journalism. There’s not a chance that Rick Porcello is going to be traded. That’s a lie. That’s not even speculation. That’s a total lie. That’s very irresponsible journalism. Trust me when I tell you that. …
“That kind of stuff ticks me off real bad, because that’s total BS. Trust me, it’s total BS. There’s not even a chance that Rick Porcello is going to be traded. In fact, Rick Porcello is going to pitch in Cleveland. There’s not a … chance that he’s going to be [traded].”
