That shit was smoked. The ball is carrying, though. It didn't seem to slow down in the air at all.

Not if you thought his ceiling was one of the best players in baseball
The early scouting reports loved his swing, calling it plus-plus power, where the ball "jumped off the bat". I can't recall anybody saying he had a plus hit tool though, so his contact skills already exceed expectations.

well, this is a nice luxury now. you can let Porcello do just about anything and get as much length out of him as possible. 6 innings should be the goal, could be 7 if things break well.
