Reaction: Verlander reportedly seeking “Max Scherzer type deal”

The Houston Chronicle's Chandler Rome adds, “per multiple people familiar with his thinking, Crane has privately questioned that contract and doesn’t seem keen on giving a similar one.”
Be sure to check out the video above as John Granato and Lance Zierlein share their thoughts on Verlander's future in Houston.
