PHOTOS: Upton and Verlander pay a visit to Chicago

Kate Upton and Justin Verlander have been on a little tour this offseason and it continued in Chicago Monday.  The power couple has been living large in Hollywood and have a timeshare in the LAX terminals with their dog Harley.

Kate Upton: Verlander once got ‘blackout drunk’ after bad start

Athletes have their ups and downs, and it’s important for them to learn how to take the good with the bad. Detroit Tigers ace Justin Verlander is no different. He had a rough 2014, in which his ERA skyrocketed to 4.54 with a 15-12 record. It was quite a difference from 2011 and 2012, when the hard-throwing pitcher compiled a 41-13 record in those two seasons combined, with an...

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.

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...
