Justin Verlander Isn’t Exactly a Train but There Aren’t Many Things That Can Slow Him Down

I wrote a brief reaction post as the seventh, eighth, and ninth innings were happening on Friday night. As I was writing it and watching the game, I fully expected Justin Verlander’s no-hitter to happen. I wasn’t 90% sure or 95% sure he would throw it, I was 100% sure. With one out and Josh […]
