Should the Tigers trade a successful Verlander this offseason?

 With Justin Verlander looking like the Justin Verlander Tigers fans are used to seeing, should the team seriously look into dealing their ace this offseason? Matt Dery of Detroit Sports 105.1 mentioned the other day to tens of the stations listeners that if Verlander continues to look strong for the rest of that year that he’d ‘look to move him in the off season… if someone...

On behalf of Justin Verlander, Tigers ‘fans’ go to Hell

Tigers starting pitcher Justin Verlander is far to classy to say this and wouldn’t dare bring it up. He would say (pp) “Tiger fans pay my salary and they have every right to state their opinion”. However coming off an outing where Justin Verlander pitches one of the ten best games he’s ever pitched for the Tigers […] The post On behalf of Justin Verlander, Tigers ‘fans’...

Five Questions: Can the Tigers count on Justin Verlander?

In the midst of a season that Tigers fans cannot move past soon enough there may be hope on the horizon heading to 2016. That hope? The apparent return of Justin Verlander.

Kate Upton praises 'inspiring' Verlander after near no-hitter

Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander came oh-so-close to notching his third-career no-hitter Wednesday night, but suffered understandable heartbreak when Los Angeles Angels catcher Chris Iannetta led off the ninth inning with a double. Verlander of course must be disappointed over how things played out, but still should be encouraged with his dominant performance in light of...

Is it safe to say Justin Verlander is officially back?

Anyone who watched the Detroit Tigers game Wednesday night was likely having flashbacks of the seasons from 2006-2012 as right hander Justin Verlander dominated the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, losing a no-hitter in the 9th inning.

Near no-hitter shows Verlander not done just yet

Justin Verlander lost a no-hitter in the ninth inning Wednesday night, the sort of thing that tinges mastery with unfulfillment.

What if Justin Verlander figured it out?

A little over a month ago, Dave ran through his annual trade value rankings, and as he likes to do, after all the good bits, he wrote up the bad bit, addressing the game’s least-valuable players. Ranking third on his list was fallen Tigers ace Justin Verlander, whose contract is steady even when the pitching isn’t. Verlander ranked worse than Matt Kemp. Worse than Shin-Soo Choo...

Justin Verlander has been damn good lately

Justin Verlander pitched another great game last night. He didn’t get the win because the bullpen tried to blow it again before the offense stole the show with a rally in extra innings. However, this is six out of his last eight starts that have been quite good. It makes you think that the four years and $112 million dollars left on his deal might not be such a bad deal after...

Astros' mascot hits on Kate Upton during Justin Verlander’s start

    Justin Verlander better watch his back, because the Houston Astros’ mascot is coming for his woman.
