Randy Johnson, Nolan Ryan & Curt Schilling are a few non-PED users that come to mind who were always good but their career spiked in their mid to late 30'sStrange how this guy's getting better in his late 30s.
If this were the '90s or '00s, I'd say something's fishy. Still's a little odd compared to other pitchers in history.
And I had the privilege to be able to watch him pitch several times since I had season tickets back in 2001. He has got to be the most intimidating pitcher to face....he was a beast out there on the mound...dude was almost 7 feet tall. I had seats near the D-Backs dugout and when I'd walk out there to get pics during the pre-game warmups I felt soooooo small!The best old guy pitcher was definitely Randy Johnson. His age 37 and 38 seasons combined for over 20WAR, over 700K in 500 innings.....that boggles the mind.
Verlander is on a nice roll right now, I'd like to see him break the alltime K record but that's not happening.
I knew there was a reason I liked you.
There is a loooong waiting list to become one of the top 10 Verlander cheerleaders.I will gladly settle for a spot in the top 10 Verlander cheerleaders. :grouphug:
Best pitcher, best media hater, best wife-haver, etc etc.
