Error 0:

Rick Porcello is fulfilling a childhood dream by coming to the New York Mets and the New Jersey native can barely contain his excitement.

Pitching for the New York Mets “is a dream come true for me,” Rick Porcello said via SNY. “Growing up as a kid, this was something I always wanted to do, and now it’s become a reality.”

Porcello, 31, grew up in New Jersey as a Mets fan. In a separate interview with Steve Serby the New York Post, Porcello said that Bruce Springsteen was his favorite musician, James Gandolfini was his favorite actor, and Al Leiter and John Franco were his favorite childhood pitchers.
