I have some beef with the Detroit Tigers. Their All-Star calibre team needs to start getting Justin Verlander some run support. It’s getting ridiculous. Verlander is in the prime of his career and has the stuff that makes him capable of throwing a no-hitter each time he steps ont he mound. Just look at this highlight reel of Verlander from the 8th inning of yesterday’s game against the Indians where he topped out at 102 MPH and peppered in a few vicious 82 MPH curve balls. Verlander pitched a complete game, let up two runs, struck out 7 in a losing effort. Clearly his 5-2 record does not properly reflect his current level of play. He actually might just need to throw a no-hitter each game to reach 20 wins this season. Put him on a team that can actually score runs like the Rangers or Cardinals and Verlander would go 34-0 this year.
