Justin Verlander Named 2018 Astros Opening Day Starter

Justin Verlander may be gone from my Detroit Tigers, but I still follow all the news surrounding JV.

So, of course, when I saw that A.J. Hunch, the Houston Astros Manager, named JV as the 2018 Opening Day starter, well, of course, a big smile came across my face.

JV will be making his 10th start on Opening Day as a big league pitcher, the first 9 of those coming wearing the Olde English D.

I knew, of course, that JV would get the nod to start the Astros season, after all, it was the trade from my Tigers to Houston that was the final piece of the World Series puzzle to bring the first big league title to the city known as H-town.

As for JV and baseball cards, I've already set my sights on 2018 Topps cards.

P.S...this is post number 899 since I started the blog in 2010...I'm not sure what to write about for post 900, but I need to make it a good one...anyway...

...Congrats JV... PLAY BALL! ⚾️
