Justin Verlander Angry Over $40 Uber Charge (Photo)

Justin Verlander only made $28 million in 2014 on a base salary of $20 million, so it’s perfectly understandable for him to be mad that his Uber charges totaled $40.50. In fact, since being in the MLB, Verlander has made over $86 million, so I can see how $40 can be upsetting. Here’s a good breakdown of why Verlander can be pissed off about $40 thanks to Busted Coverage. Justin...

Justin Verlander posted a photo of himself at the Seahawks-Eagles game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia Sunday and the commenters let him have it.  Apparently attending a game between two division leaders instead of watching the Lions play the Tampa Bay Yucks is frowned upon.
