The best case for not wasting Houston Astros’ inside track with Justin Verlander

With Astros ace Justin Verlander chasing yet another Cy Young Award this season, we discuss the possibility of signing JV to a long-term deal, and what a contract like that would look like for Houston.

Verlander is on the brink of hitting 130 innings pitched, which means he can exercise his player option and be a free agent at season's end.

Plus, we examine Astros legend Nolan Ryan's career to see if something can be learned from his excellence well into his forties.

Finally, we use another star pitcher's contract as a measuring stick to what Verlander may command and explain why it's not an apples to apples comparison.
