Stepping Up Big when the Team needs it most

A few months ago I wrote a post about the Tigers need to pay Justin Verlander. Yes, he wanted alot of money and yes they ultimately paid him. Tonight he stepped up yet again for the Tigers and proved why he is worth (almost) every dollar. If only he could hit too I might like their chances out in Boston better. Hopefully Austin Jackson and Alex Avila can find their swings in the next two days because if not every one of the Tigers pitchers is going to need to go eight strong innings or it could be a quick series. For now, I’ll sit back and enjoy their victory.

I took this picture while out at Spring Training back in March. We had a feeling at the time that the Tigers were going to special and here they sit in the final four again. Let’s just hope they can finish it this year!

  1. I’m glad they are on the winning streak .. when they had to pay that amount of money for him.
    I have very mixed feeling about … money like that – how much is a job worth .. is his job more important than somebody that keeps the streets clean.
    For entertaiment … sit back and enjoy.
