‘BREAKING’… Justin Verlander’s trade deadline tweet will have you rolling over


The Major League Baseball trade deadline has officially come and gone and Justin Verlander, despite numerous rumors over the past few weeks, is still a member of the Detroit Tigers.

Just prior to the 4 p.m. deadline, Verlander tweeted out the following message to let everyone know he is “still in the Tigers locker room.”

As the deadline approached, JV had been rumored to be a target of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cubs, and Houston Astros, just to name a few. The Tigers were reportedly willing to deal the former American League Cy Young and MVP winner but they were not willing to take on enough of the $56 million which is owed to him over the next two seasons.
