  • Justin Verlander yielded two runs in six innings and struck out 11 in a loss to the Rockies on Tuesday.
    Advice: It's really quite stunning to see Verlander with an 11-8 record, what with him sporting a 2.52 ERA for a first-place team. The Astros are just 14-12 when he pitches, compared to 59-35 the rest of the time. Of course, that's hardly his fault.

  • Justin Verlander was ejected for arguing Thursday against the Mariners.
    Advice: He got into it with home plate umpire Nick Lentz between innings following a questionable balk call. Verlander wasn't long for this game anyway—the Mariners ripped him for six runs on seven hits (including three homers) in just two innings of work. For whatever reason, the Astros ace just didn't have it tonight. Brad Peacock came on in relief of Verlander in the third inning.
