Buster Olney's "Major" News was a Justin Verlander Extension? Really?

Talk about a letdown. ESPN’s Buster Olney tweeted earlier that he was hearing rumblings of “major” baseball news.

PED suspension? Shocking trade? A-Rod banished from the league?

Nope, nope, nope.

Justin Verlander signed a 7-year, $180 million extension. Whoop de damn do. (The Tigers tweeted it was a 5-year extension with a vesting option.)

That’s major news? Was Verlander in the mix to go elsewhere? He wasn’t even a free agent!

Boring.
