BOSTON - Rick Porcello didnt hesitate when asked to recall memories of pitching in Fenway Park.In his rookie season, he hit Bostons Kevin Youkilis in the back with the first pitch of the second inning.There it is, said Porcello, smiling about the question. Getting thrown out in the second inning my rookie year. Getting charged by Kevin Youkilis. That was definitely one of them.Youkilis charged the mound during the confrontation in 2009, threw his helmet at the right-hander and tackled him. Both were ejected.Porcello, who turns 26 on Dec. 27, was introduced Friday after the Red Sox acquired him from the Detroit Tigers last week for outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and two minor league pitchers.Porcello had other Fenway memories, too.During a September start in Bostons run to the 2013 World Series title, he lasted just five-plus innings, getting tagged for nine runs and seven hits — three homers — during a 20-4 loss. He fared much better last season, going eight solid innings in a victory over the Red Sox.For whatever reason, I had a couple of rough starts here and last year I broke through in this ballpark and had a quality start, he said. That was a nice game for me. I had a lot of my family here. I just remember that one for some reason. Its funny, my first year and my last year were my two most memorable moments Ive had in this ballpark to this point.During his 2013 outing, David Ortiz homered to collect his 1,999th career hit. Ortiz hit No. 2,000 off a reliever two innings later.Im definitely happy that I dont have to worry about balls sailing over my head off Ortizs bat, thats for sure, Porcello said. Its going to be a lot of fun. Watching these guys in 2013, when we were competing against them in the playoffs and the fire that they had and everything they had going on in this clubhouse, Im thrilled to be a part of it.Porcello is coming off his best season when he went 15-13 with a 3.43 ERA in 32 starts. He was picked up to help bolster Bostons staff after Jon Lester passed on returning to the Red Sox, signing a $155-millon, six-year deal with the Chicago Cubs.Porcello will be part of a new rotation after Boston also acquired left-hander Wade Miley from Arizona for Rubby De La Rosa and Allen Webster and infielder Raymel Flores. The Red Sox also signed free agent right-hander Justin Masterson.The three likely will join Joe Kelly and Clay Buchholz in a rotation that seems without a true No. 1 starter.I think you have to have five aces, Porcello said. Each one of us has to have pride in their job.Porcello was part of loaded rotation in Detroit last season that included Max Scherzer, Justin Verlander, David Price and Anibal Sanchez.I think watching each of them go about their business, theres something you can learn from everybody, he said. Max is a very analytical guy that talks a lot about pitch selection. Justin is a bulldog, a competitor on the mound. You learn a lot watching his competitiveness. Theres definitely things you can learn from everybody. Nike Air Force Ones Sale .com) - Colorado forward P. Nike Air Force 1 Cheap Outlet . Yahoo!

The combination thats returned the franchise to respectability will remain intact for years to come.Louis van Gaal says he has been involved in planning for next season at Manchester United. Speculation continues to surround the Dutchmans future, despite leading United to their first FA Cup final for nearly a decade and with his team still in the running for a top-four spot.Jose Mourinho is reportedly keen on the post should United look to replace Van Gaal in the summer, however, Sky Sports News HQ understands no agreement has been reached between the club and the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss. Speculation continues to surround Van Gaals future at Manchester United When asked if he has been involved in the planning for next season, Van Gaal said: Yes, I am involved so thats not any discussion and its also logical because I am the manager.We have seen that we are in a transition period and when I was mentioned as the coach it was also about that we have discussed and when I took over we had more than five or six players above 32 or 33 and then you have to select and you have to buy other players. Van Gaal has led Manchester United to the FA Cup final Van Gaal was speaking ahead of his sides clash with Leicester on Super Sunday and he believes United will need to win all of their remaining league games if they are to sneak into the top four.United sit fifth in the table, five points adrift of Manchester City and Arsenal in third and fourth respectively, though they do have a game in hand and those two sides still have to play one another.However, the Red Devils face a difficult game this weekend as they host the Premier League leaders and Van Gaal knows anything less than three points would be a hammer blow to his teams top-four chances. Louis van Gaal thinks Manchester United can only postpone Leicester winning the Premier League. I think we have to bbeat Leicester because we are still in the race for the first positions so we have to beat them, Van Gaal said.dddddddddddde have to close the gap so the pressure is on us still. We have to win every game that we have to play. City still have to play against Arsenal, though, so one of those shall lose points.We are fighting for the qualification of the Champions League and we are still in the FA Cup, so we have to fight for something and we shall do it. Hopefully, we can beat Leicester City. A win for Leicester on Sunday would secure the league title and cap a fairy-tale ending to one of the more remarkable sporting stories in recent memory.Van Gaal admits even he would be pleased to see Leicester crowned champions but hopes United can postpone their celebrations for one more week. Jamie Redknapp joins Ed Chamberlain to preview Super Sunday It is good for the Premier League and the sport of football that not always the same teams are the champion, Van Gaal saidWe cannot allow that they are the champions this weekend at Old Trafford.

FA Cup final may come too soon for United full-back Luke Shaw Speaking to MUTV, the Dutchman said: We dont have any injuries, except Shaw, who is already not injured any more but is building up, and Schweinsteiger.Asked if Shaw could be ready to face Palace, he added: He can, maybe, but it shall be difficult because he has to play first a lot of matches in the second team. We have to wait and see because you cannot say anything. Its going very well with him. Also See: Man Utd video Man Utd fixtures Man Utd stats Get a £10 free bet! ' ' '
