Very gutsy to say that after 3 great starts in a row. Where was this prediction from you April 23rd?

And Verlanders price would be way to high to try and get right now. I'd just wait for his next 5+ ER game then try to get him.

I haven't been able to watch any of the games. He is on a roll right now, but did something change? Is his velocity up? Pitch location? Pitch selection? Secondary stuff? Anyone care to chyme in with what has changed?

His fastball velocity is through the roof, he's back to 95-96 MPH instead of 91-92. I took him in one draft because my pitching was terrible and I was aiming high for whatever starter could become an ace, hopefully Verlander keeps this up because it took his great start tonight to bring my team ERA under 5 and I don't even own Wang there.

In the 2 games I watched he is locating his fastball better then ever. Painting corners constantly while hitting 95-99. And his curve isn't looking too bad either.
