Houston creating their own madness in March as they rocket up the standings

The Rockets got another big win on Sunday night against the Mavericks and Houston has quietly made up a lot of ground in the standings over the last three weeks. The Rockets have a relatively soft schedule ahead of them, so let's hope they can keep stacking up the wins.

Most Popular's Brian McTaggart was first to report that Justin Verlander will be seeking BIG money this offseason, comparable to Max Scherzer's Mets 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.

Catch The Bench with John and Lance weekdays from 7-9 AM on ESPN 97.5 and 92.5 FM.
