The Houston Astros decided that they needed to bring Justin Verlander back this season and it has of course proven to be the best decision that they could have made. At 25 million dollars this season, you could make the argument that he is the most underpaid player in the league. At the age of 39, he has come back and shown the world that he is still the best pitcher on the planet.
With this man at the top of the staff, you can go into any series thinking you are going to start off with a 1-0 lead. His stuff is still all there and he looks like an even better pitcher than before. He is the favorite to win the Cy Young, the favorite to win the comeback player of the year and the favorite to continue to hold the crown of being the best pitcher in baseball.
