Justin Verlander traded to Astros
 
Justin Verlander has been traded from the Detroit Tigers to the Houston Astros. He won't have to worry about safely getting around the flooded streets of his new city, as model girlfriend Kate Upton's ample breasts are federally certified as flotation devices.

In his late 20s he looked like he was headed for immortality. Now, not so much, although he still has a very respectable record.

If he plays 3-5 more years I think he's a HOF'er.

Nick yeah he could still get there but at age 28/29 he was on track for being an all time great type. Now I think his upside, still not terrible of course, is a lower tier HOFer.

I feel like Halladay was better than Verlander and I think he may have a hard time getting in.

Those decline years can really stop a career in it's tracks, but I think he'll do well enough to get in. Especially once he starts hitting strikeout milestones and the like.

Now there's a guy who based on my perception of him, I am surprised his stats weren't better when I just looked. Phenomenal winning percentage though, and he quit rather young.

2 NO-hitters, Rookie of the Year Award, MVP and Cy Young Award Winner. He is currently ranked as the 5th best pitcher in baseball by Bill James (behind Sale, Kluber, Scherzer and Kershaw ). I think he is headed for the HOF unless something drastically happens.

I second this. If not first ballot HOF then shortly there after.

Over the past 10+ yrs there probably isn't a better or more consistent pitcher.

Every time JV takes the mound it is must see TV. (Thanks Rod Allen) He still has no hit stuff and with the new motivation on the Astros I would not be surprised if he gets one or two more no no's.
