Verlander Dominates as the Tigers Advance to the ALCS: I think this is number one," Verlander said. "The two no-hitters are obviously up there, but that's something a little bit different. This is win or go home. My team needs me. And I was able to go out there and have one of the better performances I've had.

Sometimes I wonder how Verlander doesn't win 30 games a year.

He had that look last night that you want to see in your ace's eyes. That "skip's gonna have to shoot me to get my out of this game" look. Haven't seen that in a Tiger's pitcher since Morris...

No run support, usually. Or the shaky bullpen mucking it up.

Or sometimes he gives up eight runs against the Royals. It varies.

If Tom Kelly were managing the Tigers, he'd pitch Verlander every other game from here to Halloween.

Yeah, sometimes, but sometimes he's just off. Hell. even the Red Sox had a good game against him this year.

He's just so dominant when he's on.
