Tigers ace Justin Verlander, who you may remember pitched decently on Saturday, was interviewed by Tony Kornheiser and Michael Wilbon on PTI today (yeah, like 20 minutes ago. I’m good.) Verlander discussed his no-no, Alex Avila’s bladder and his place among the greats of the game.
I was surprised to hear Verlander say that he’s never felt the way he did on Saturday at any other point of his career, especially considering he’s already thrown another no-hitter. Let’s hope he figured out what worked so that JV can join the likes of Koufax and Ryan with a 3rd no-hitter in a few years. Oh, and also that Alex Avila doesn’t end up with kidney problems.
