Programming note: Blue Jays-A’s coverage starts tonight at 6:30 p.m. with A’s Pregame Live on Comcast SportsNet California
Detroit Tigers starter Justin Verlander has been the pitcher to send the A's home in each of the last two seasons.
On Saturday morning, he reacted to the trade the A's made to acquire starters Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel from the Cubs.
Verlander on A's trade: "They made that trade because of us." Verlander, Tigs have eliminated A's the last two years.— Freep Tigers (@freeptigers) July 5, 2014
Verlander on A's and trade: "If they want to win a World Series, they are envisioning that they have to go through us."— Freep Tigers (@freeptigers) July 5, 2014
Do you agree with Verlander? Did the A's make the trade in order to get past the Tigers in the postseason?
