Justin Verlander has looked like the best pitcher in baseball for a few years now. This season, the flame-throwing right-hander appears to be confusing hitters even more than usual.
The confusion began on Opening Day when Verlander threw eight scoreless innings in a 3-2 win against the Red Sox. The reigning AL MVP and Cy Young award winner has continued his dominance since, but Verlander isn't expecting to have the same sort of success against the Red Sox this time around.
NESN's Jenny Dell caught up with Verlander on Monday to talk with the talented pitcher about his success so far this season and what he's expecting from Boston in his start on Tuesday.
Check out the video above to hear from Verlander about his expectations against the Red Sox.
