Justin Verlander pitched a gem today. To try and grab a run back, Tampa Bay sent Joey Butler up as a pinch hitter which prompted Jeff Jones to head to the mound to discuss how to handle the new player. Verlander decided to have a little fun.
With the way he was pitching, I don't think he really needed the advice.
Verlander went on the strike out the side in the 8th. Pretty clear we are going to have to keep this handy moving forward:
