Sporting News has dubbed Verlander the 2011 MLB Player of the Year.

In voting by 289 major league players (177 players from the AL, 112 from the NL), Verlander was the first pitcher to win the award since the Los Angeles Dodgers' Orel Hershiser in 1988.

This is likely the first of many awards for Verlander this year. Keep 'em rolling in!

Congratulations, Justin.

Tigers vs. Rangers, game 4. Supposed to start at 4:19, but ESPN is saying tarps are still on the field and there is going to be a rain delay (link). The weather radar doesn't look too hot (link).

If they are able to get the game in, we will see Rick Porcello match up against Matt Harrison. Both had pretty mediocre regular seasons, and both have pitched decently in the playoffs so far. Also, Adrian Beltre, Delmon Young, and V-Mart are all slated to play.

Tigers and A's is underway from Oakland. With the Indians currently losing 6-0 to Texas in the bottom of the 6th, the Tigers can win the AL Central with a win tonight. It's the MLB.TV free game of the night so all can watch:
