POLL: Nearly Two-Thirds Prefer Rick Porcello As Second Playoff Starter

Very early voting in out latest FenwayNation Poll shows a pretty clear preference for a Game Two playoff starter. In fact, nearly two-thirds of our readers (65%) would like to see former Cy Young winner Rick Porcello follow Chris Sale in the Red Sox playoff rotation. As the chart shows, 16% each favor either David Price or Eduardo Rodriguez as the starter for a post-season Game Two, while 3% prefer Nathan Eovaldi in that role. So far, no votes have been cast for: Brian Johnson, Drew Pomeranz or Steven Wright.  Of course, a lot of the decision-making on this score will be dependent on who among these seven hurlers is healthy at playoff time.
