When he spent more than two months on the disabled list and then struggled in his first few starts of 2015, it looked as if Verlander's best days were long behind him -- a bad sign for Detroit, considering his exorbitant contract that lasts through at least 2019. But...

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. Verlander was a perennial All Star, MVP candidate, and Cy Young candidate for over half a decade until injuries hampered him for a majority of the last...

JV Reminds Detroit Baseball is Fun

The 2015 Detroit Tigers season will go down as a failure. A constant stream of faint hope drowned by a deluge of disappointment.

What might have been...

This Just In, Verlander Not Bad At All

*swirls a glass, takes a gulp. spits it back in a bucket*  "That's vintage Justin Verlander," said Kate Upton.  "Okay, this might sound gross, but can you spit into my mouth?"  That's you getting up the nerve to say something to Kate Upton.  I just thought of a moneymaking idea for Shark Tank!  You stand outside of Comerica Park with a cardboard cutout of a naked Verlander and...

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...
