Justin Verlander has it. Dumb as he is on the right hand slide of his peak pitching performance.


Detroit messed up on this one, which is good for KC in long run. A-Rod pay for no performance.

7 years to a pitcher at any point of their career is insane.

Agreed. But Verlander is as good of a bet as there is, among pitchers that age.

Justin has basically gone 200+ innings for 7 years now. Usually that when the cars start to break down.


With a thinner frame, I see Johan Santana and Tim Lincecum and not Roger Clemens or Nolan Ryan.

Greg Maddux's velocity dropped but he was in the league for his ability to pitch and not throw. Once that fastball of Verlander decreases in 2 years, he is average and that contract is good for the player and not the club.

IMO

Your opinion is not well-reasoned. Santana and Lincecum are not good comparisons.

Depends. He had some minor elbow stuff last year. If that proves to be a passing thing, yeah, he'll be the first $200MM+ guaranteed pitcher.

Verlander is 6'5" 225 lbs....if that's a small frame, then I must be a legal midget.

Seems like a very small contract. Especially for an ace.

How so? Both Cy Young winners who are barely staying in the league now. I think Verlander might have won a Cy Young.

You really didn't analyze my words and just went to attack and insulting mode. I introduced statistics earlier in the thread so I might have been referring to that.

By the way, I am so going to beat you in Fantasy Baseball. wink

Please notice I refrain from name calling and other E-Fighting childish behaviors.

First off...where was the namecalling?

And second off, your example of Verlander wearing down were two players that have nowhere near the same build as Verlander. You were wrong, you tried backtracking, and you failed yet again my saying I am name calling.

Holy hell dude....just admit when you just state something without actually backing it up with facts.

Good luck in fantasy...did I mention I won the league last season?
