DETROIT (AP) -- After allowing seven runs to the Cleveland Indians on May 3, Justin Verlander took to Twitter -- always a risky move for an athlete, especially one coming off a frustrating performance.

Justin Verlander predicted his own recent dominance

Leon Halip/Getty Images Justin Verlander has never not sounded confident in his abilities.  The confidence has beamed in 2011 and ’12 when he was the best pitcher on the planet and in 2014, ’15 and most of the young 2016 when he looked like Joe Schmo.
