Justin Verlander Angry He Wasn’t Named a Heisman Trophy Finalist
Justin Verlander was named the American League MVP today, six days after taking home the AL Cy Young Award. It’s the first time a starting pitcher has won both awards in a quarter century.
But Verlander told OMGG.com he isn’t satisfied.
The 28-year-old righty, who posted a dominant 24-5 record with 250 strikeouts and a 2.40 ERA for the American League Central champion Tigers, says he deserved more recognition for his record-breaking season.
“I think I’ve proven I’m the greatest athlete of this generation,” tweeted the formerly-humble pitcher. “After the year I just had, I probably should’ve been named ‘AL Manager of the Year’, or at the very least taken home an Emmy.”
