Why exactly did Leyland take Verlander out of the game when he had a 2-hit shutout through 8? His pitch count was 105, but that's not an outrageous amount, and he certainly could've pitched another inning at the rate he was mowing down hitters. How can you not trust your defending MVP and Cy Young to finish it off there?

I'm glad the Tigers won anyway, but Verlander got screwed out of a win.

Anytime you can take out the reigning Cy Young and MVP for an overrated pitcher in an overrated role who received praise last year only from those who don't understand the word "unsustainable", you have to do it.
