Whatever Justin Verlander wants, Justin Verlander gets these days.  SI Swimsuit model?  Check.  Ferrari, Lamborghini, multiple Mercedes and an Aston Martin?  Check, check, check and check.  Even Twitter is eating out of Verlander’s right hand. On Monday, JV took to the masses with a plea to get his brother Ben, a Tigers minor leaguer who’s in spring training with the big boys, “verified” on Twitter.  To those not well-versed in Twitter speak, “celebrities” are “verified” on Twitter so users know they’re following official accounts.  The elder Verlander, Justin, has 462,000+ followers and is verified.  Younger brother Ben has 19,100 followers. At 3:56PM EST Monday, Justin asked Twitter to “verify” Ben because Ben made a spring training Major League appearance.  He sought his followers’ retweets to support his cause. Twitter   At 4:01PM EST, Ben was verified. Like I said, whatever JV wants, JV gets – even to the point of a $30 BILLION company dropping everything and granting his wish IN FIVE MINUTES. Twitter Tigers fans should be hoping that good ole JV wants a World Series ring.  He can start asking for it anytime now.  Ready…GO!
