Happy Justin Verlander Day

The Houston Astros stole from the Detroit Tigers in 2017, and the Astros have been the team to beat in the AL since then.

Happy Justin Verlander Day to the Houston Astros fans that observe this glorious holiday.

Five years ago the Houston Astros pulled off a miraculous trade that brought the ace of his generation to Minute Maid Park, which has lead to the Golden Age of the franchise. The Astros have won a World Series, been to two other World Series, and have been in the last five American League Championship Series since acquiring Verlander. Thank you, Jeff Lunhow.

Since joining the Houston Astros, Justin Verlander has been unconscious. His win-loss record is 59-18 with a 2.30 ERA. You can add on 794 Ks, with three complete games, and, oh yeah, a no-hitter. He was runner-up for the Cy Young award in 2018 and brought his second Cy Young home in 2019 with one of the most absurd seasons we’ve ever seen from an Astros pitcher. Somehow, at age 39, he’s on his way to producing yet another Cy Young worthy season. Justin Verlander isn’t human.

Astros fans will never forget when the news broke, or when they woke up and saw that Justin Verlander was indeed traded to the Houston Astros. The immense joy that I received from reading that tweet the next morning is nearly indescribable. I had a gut feeling throughout that season that the Astros were incredibly special, but getting Verlander cemented the status of the team as no-shit World Series contenders.

While JV is on the 15-day IL, there is still an incredible case for him to win the Cy Young again this year. Verlander in 2022 is 16-3 with a 1.84 ERA, 152 IP, and 154 Ks. I’m no statistician, but my analysis is that boy good.

I literally love Justin Verlander.
