Question Detroit trades Justin Verlander to Houston
Astros acquired RHP Justin Verlander from the Tigers for RHP Franklin Perez, OF Daz Cameron and C Jake Rogers.

The Astros get their potential playoff stud, but it comes at a very heavy price, as they surrendered three of their top 10 prospects and took on $28 million salaries in 2018 and 2019 (though the Tigers are reportedly covering at least $10 million total). Houston doesn't need Verlander to get to the postseason, so this is all about what he can do in October. He's been an elite starter just once in the last five years (in 2016), though he's still well above average now and forever capable of working deep into games. His arrival will likely bounce Mike Fiers from Houston's rotation.

They're going for it. They also know that a deep playoff run for the astros will be a great thing for that city this fall.

He's been such a disappointment in his support of Old Dominion.
Could have really flown the flag for us if he chose to.
Could have really made a dramatic impact on baseball facilities.
He and his brother went to school here and not a lot of love from him.
Dissapointing.

Verlander won for the Astros today to clinch the AL west. Since being traded from the Tigers he is 3-0, in 21 innings he has surrendered 2 runs, and three walks, and struck out 26.
