I was all ready to move past the loss to Justin Verlander but I could not get something out of my head and it’s been gnawing at me most of the day. So in an attempt to make what happened make sense I will test my theory and see if there is validity.
Neftali Feliz was pitching lights out against the Tigers, his pitch count was through the floor and more importantly Justin Verlander didn’t seem to have his A game going. Verlander was visibly upset with himself and the quality of pitches he was throwing. The score was 1-0 Rangers and the only thing that was consistent for the Tigers was their aggravating young fan behind plate who was dressed like Tony the Tiger.
