Pedro Martinez's Old Wounds Reopened With Justin Verlander's MVP Award

P edro Martinez was the best pitcher in baseball during the late '90s and early 2000s, and some might argue that he was the best player in the game.

If Only the folks at 2K Sports could make a competent baseball game

This is a shot from the set of 2ksports studios, where they’re making what I’m sure will be their next masterpiece starring Justin Verlander. Counter-clockwise there you’ve got the one and only Jay Bruce, David Price and C.J. Wilson. I like the cast they’ve got involved here, and I have to give 2ksports some credit.

JV Does CoCo

As a Tigers’ fan, I’m proud of Justin Verlander.  Not only did he carry his team into the playoffs, he also brought home the Cy Young and the MVP.  That’s a lot of hardware for one season and like him or not, the guy deserved it.However, for all that he is (human cannon; Detroit’s great white hope; tiger-striped aphrodisiac) there are also things he is not.  For instance...
