This is what Justin Verlander told reporters in Detroit today about the standing ovation he got at Comerica Park: "There might be a fleeting moment where you say this might be the last time. But it's very fleeting." Verlander, who continues to be a part of numerous trade talks, threw 7 solid innings, allowing 3 runs on 5 hits and striking out 9 batters. Detroit lost 5-3 to KC in extra innings. In his 3 starts since the All-Star break, Verlander has a 3.26 ERA.
