The way he's pitching for Houston. The next 30 game winner is in the making? Houston has a great defense behind him as well, not those old DH type players n Detroit. JV K's and Houston's D 20 games is well within reach. Tigers need to get in the real world and catch up to world.
Tigers better start drafting a whole lot better.

I see 250 wins as possible. Only 62 away. He could pitch 6 more years until he's 40.. Average 10 is not all that difficult. If he stays with the Astros the next two years he'll win games if he pitches poorly because of that offense.. I think he gets 35 wins the next two years.

How Justin Verlander might have changed the trade deadline forever.
Teams may think of 2017 when considering deadline deals in the future.
