One fault with Tiger ace

September 4, 2011 - Burt Angeli
Former Detroit Tiger pitching great Jack Morris finds one fault with Justin Verlander, a 20 plus-game winner this season.

"I had been critical of him,” Morris told the St. Paul Pioneer Press when asked about the present Tiger ace. “I told him, 'I see you wasting too many pitches. You don't have to throw 130 pitches when you can get by with 95 or 100.' You've got that kind of stuff. Why are you trying to strike everybody out?'

"Get 'em out with three pitches; get 'em out with two pitches. He understood where I was coming from. He bought into it. We had a good talk."
