I am too. Verlander will always be known as a Tiger but I'll love him forever for being exactly what the Astros needed. Without him the Astros don't make it.

Agreed. Sure, they lost yesterday, but he owned the gently caress out of the Yankees and if not for that they don't even get a shot

I also love Tigers fans forever and ever. Without Verlander there is no chance the Astros win this championship.

Shoutout one last time to Intruder for saying that was a horrible trade.



It was a heck of a ride, Astros fans. Thanks for doing what the Tigers never could and actually picking up those bats and lifting JV up.

Plus I'd say the offense going ice cold and stranding quite a few runners in Game 6 didn't help. He went several innings though which helped keep relievers fresh for tonight so ultimately you could say he helped quite a bit more than many realized.

Butt first, let's

Yeah, people are kind of acting like Verlander sucked yesterday. He threw 6 innings with 2 ER, 3 Hs, 0 BBs, and 9 Ks. That's not exactly a bad outing by any metric unless you're gonna kill him for not going 7. You just can't win without runs.

I believe the Astros hired Joe Espada to be their bench coach. Good riddance. Hopefully the Yankees actually get someone decent for the 3b coach position this year.

Less bad luck and more that he has been, historically, very bad in the first inning. Here are his career splits by inning:



He's a "needs time to settle in" type of pitcher, which doesn't jive well with how SP are managed in the postseason these days.
