Verlander: We begin with huge Salary pitchers who just haven't been showing up in games at all. In years 2011 and 2012 Verlander was to be feared as he won 42 and lost only 13. The year he gets paid 20 million in that summer, he's become an very average pitcher. The facts are that his numbers are WAY below what anyone would have expected over the past 2 years winning 19 and losing 19 or just a lousy 50%. He has been hit and hit very hard over the 2 years. Ok so the 20 million dollar baby was hurt so he couldn't play. He stopped playing as his pride was hurt. Not any physical part of him.
Max Scherzer: The Blue and Brown eyed Cy-Young award winner last year has gotten paid Millions as well. Max was first in the AL with 21 wins last season and 5th overall in era at 2.9. This year last years CY-Young winner is as of 6/18/2014 is in the number 26 position with ERA and No. 28 in WHIP just behind his team mate Porcello. Scherzer gave up 7 runs in the 2nd inning to Kansas City Royals last night. Turn this guy over he's done. Maxx should feel disgusted regarding his performance and give back his cash.
