Not all arm injuries / fatigue cause velocity to drop, I don't think. And his velocity was definitely down earlier in the year. One way or the other he's off, and I hope they get him straightened out. Whether that's fixing his mechanics or giving him a breather.

It's incredible but Verlander might be putting himself into Lincecum territory. Hey, it worked for the Giants last year, but man...could he possibly be in the pen if they go to a 3 man rotation in the playoffs?
