Justin Verlander has a pretty solid case for the Hall of Fame: 2011 AL MVP, 2011 AL Cy Young, 6x All-Star, 2011 Triple Crown, 2006 AL Rookie of the Year, 2x Wins leader, 1x ERA leader, 4x Strikeouts leader, and 2 no-hitters.

And may the Tigers win the AL Central! (Sorry, but I had to put that in there)
So I found a post on Bleacher Report titled “20 Reasons Baseball Is the Worst” (there’s a surprise at the end, but you’ll have to read it to find out). So I’m going to post what the author said about each reason, and create a counter-argument for each. By the way, you can find the post HERE.
