I think that's overpaying way too much.

Felix has the exact same line as Verlander almost every time out minus a start here and there where he gets hit.

Ellsbury is an elite offensive machine.

You could wait for Ellsbury to go on a little hot streak and try to grab Verlander for Ells straight up, if you're so inclined go after Verlander.
