    I guess I should have looked closer at the tweet. The tweet is from 2012 when the Tigers beat the Yankees in the playoffs.

    It's obvious he doesn't know baseball and he certainly doesn't know how to throw one. In all fairness though, if the tweet is real, it is posted in 2012 and not about this trade.
    After I had identified a few, I saw and recognized the shade of him who made, through cowardice, the great refusal.

    If I were Verlander, it would be because Houston will be going to the postseason barring a major choke. I'd also like to believe Justin and Kate think they can be the "Drew Brees" of Houston.

    And sometimes neither the star/regular players as they can destroy instead of help team chemistry in a playoff hunt.

    As usual, the haters never want to give our President any credit, only to find out later that maybe his statements were based on facts. At the time of the tweet posted in 2012, Verlander had a postseason ERA of about 5.50. I would say that President Trump's statement was accurate at the time. Naturally, there is some moron out there who digs up an old tweet, in attempt to make the President look bad in the wake of the hurricane, hoping that no one catches the date of the initial tweet. The haters and the media need to relax. The constant criticism helps no one.

    As a fellow ODU alum, I hope Verlander does great for the Astros.

    Bro there is an old tweet for every event that happens. Someone found it because of the trade not the hurricane

    Bring me your Bickford, Ryan McMahon, Senzatela and Peter Lambert cards

    It has been said that the birther-in-chief participates in cuckoldry.

    Are there candidate teams besides the Dodgers, Astros, and maybe Nationals that have a high % chance of making WS now? The strong teams are really pulling away with things.


    as for Trump...
