THE DIRTY ARMY: Hey long time fan here — love the site. You are always talking about dreamkillers and Verlander is with Kate Upton. Well ESPN Insider did a story on his declining skills that I thought you might be interested in. In short, he has gone from one of the best pitchers in baseball to an average one. They basically summed it up with this paragraph: “Verlander’s 2013 season represented a bit of a down year (for him), but there were still reasons to be optimistic about his 2014. Losing some velocity off his fastball from 2012 was cause for concern, but his peripheral numbers remained those of a pitcher who still terrorized batters. His 3.28 FIP was worse than the 2.94, 2.99 and 2.97 FIPs of his previous three seasons, but not alarmingly so. However, a year later, that warning light has become a blaring red klaxon, with a disturbing drop-off in all of Verlander’s stats.”… another dream killer ruins another career.
I didn’t know Justin Verlander was into fat chicks.- nik
