There's also this fun fact from Dan Dickerson: going into Tuesday night's game, Verlander's remarkable WHIP of 0.872 was the 3rd-lowest of any Major League starter in the last 40 years; only Pedro Martinez ('00) & Greg Maddux ('95) rocked lower WHIPs.

And here's your update on Verlander's stats after a Tigers' loss: 19 starts, 14-3 record, 1.77 ERA, 147 strikeouts opposite 24 walks in 147.2 innings pitched, and a 0.83 WHIP.

It's Verlander's Cy Young to lose.
