Verlander is clearly having issues lately. Is he terrible? No. But since his start on June 1st, he's had four average to below average outings. Allowed 7 HRs (3 each in back to back games), and hasn't held an opponent to less than 3 runs. ERA has ballooned from 2.16 to 2.67 (before tonight). Career high in HR/9, and a FIP all the way at 3.76.

That's solid for a #3 like Miley, but Verlander hasn't been pitching like an ace in June.

Thankfully the offense picked him back up in the bottom half.


6IP 3ER is a quality start. You're just spoiled.

Speed enhances everything. Well, almost everything.

Can Straw be a good enough defensive SS to be the man? I hope so, that would open up a lot of options.

Break up the Astros!!!
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

Don't need dingers....just consistency timely hitting

He'd make a great pair with Mike Stanton. A couple of Yankee big talkers.

Just his voice. Otherwise I think he has been fine.

I disagree with Girardii, Bregs would have had it at home. Right choice to go to 1st, but would have had him.
mwm

Top 3 & already at 60 pitches.

His voice is definitely annoying but it also seems like he talks too much. Of course the latter may be a result of the former.

It's just typical a New Yorker talking a mile a minute. But he has been balanced and giving good insight from a pro perspective.

Need to slow down here & let JV catch his breath.

A 2-out rally would help.
