I am not sure what people expected Justin Verlander to say. In cases like this it is best to go with the no comment and I am not going to speak on it going forward. We all saw it (if you haven’t go here) and it is what it is. Here is what he had to say via Yahoo.
”I’m not going to comment on my personal life,” the 31-year-old said. ”I never have and I never plan on it. I keep my personal life personal. The focus for me is on the Detroit Tigers. I don’t want to take any focus away from this team and what we’re trying to accomplish. We’re in the middle of a pennant race. We’re trying to win a pennant and all of my focus currently is on doing whatever I can to help our team win our division.”
”Instead of everybody kind of sneaking around and getting questions at specific times, it’s just easier to say, ‘I’m not commenting on that. I’m trying to win a pennant.’ I know some guys are probably getting a lot of pressure from other people to get quotes or whatever. I knew I’d be getting a lot of questions. This is it.”
Only thing he could really say, it won’t stop the memes (which you can view here), but people are already moving on.
