Verlander has distanced himself from the Astros, yet is being paid Millions by the Astros.
This is a deterrent to signing players to huge contracts just to see them become primadonnas and get paid to do nothing.
Similarly happened to Cole and Springer this year.
I totally understand Crane's rule of not being the highest bidder. Also kudos to players like Yuli who take a pay cut, to be with THIS team, and has he best performance ever and wins the AL batting title.
Shame on Verlander, where Stromy resurrected his career only for him to ungrateful.
