Ken Giles rejoices, quietly and to himself.

If Verlander was 27 or 28 at the time, I would agree with you. But he wasn't. And we're no longer dealing with pitchers from the year 2002. The chances of Verlander or any power pitcher (this is why Price, Sabbathia, and Grienke are not apt comparisons) with that many innings/pitches under their belts sustaining the success at 31, 32, or 33 are slim to none. Him falling off was not difficult to project.

He’s ok I guess. If you’re into that whole future HOF thing.

and his contract is actually kind of a deal at this point... and he might get another 3 year 80 million after it.

Meh. Verlander DID fall off a cliff at that age, and that's normal. A heavy workload leading to a significant decline in velocity and subsequent decline in performance coupled with an arm injury in his early 30's is pretty common. What's less common is a pitcher suddenly rediscovering his peak velocity at 34-35. It happened, obviously, but it was never the most likely result.

Given his last couple of seasons, the contract looks really good. But he would have to have a couple pretty amazing seasons to get 3 years/$80 million heading into his age-37 season.

Cardinals - Brewers game was the first time in history that a game started and ended with back to back home runs. It blows my mind that after 100+ years and 154 / 162 games per year per team, that each and every year, we still have several "first time in MLB history" accomplishments.


In yesterdays SD/SF game, it was the first time in MLB history, a team was held to 1 hit, and the 1 hit was a pinch hit, hit, by a pitcher, who did not pitch in the game. Congrats Clayton Richard

Today was the second time in MLB history that a pitcher K'd at least 11 in three consecutive starts.

Saturday’s game won’t be played. And Sunday looks like a long shot. Everything sucks.

974 fans at the White Sox vs Rays game Monday. Would have been a perfect day for Lament to film some anal porn scenes on the concourse.

Ive seen the Braves bullpen blow games before...

But wow, that was impressive. From 10-2 to lose 14-10

Pretty good reminder how far off they are.
