Known World Series choke artist Justin Verlander flips off Phillies fans while entering Citizens Bank Park
The Houston Astros have arrived in Philadelphia for Games 3, 4, and 5, and Justin Verlander is already making more of a fool out of himself than he did in Game 1.
Justin Verlander flips off Phillies fans
As the team bus was making its way into Citizens Bank Park, Justin Verlander seemed to throw up the middle finger to Phillies fans standing outside the complex. The bus kept on driving, the players got off, and Verlander did it again while laughing it off.
World Series Game 3 Preview >>
If Justin Verlander doesn’t remember, he’s statistically the worst starting pitcher in the history of the World Series. He now has a 6.07 ERA with an 0-6 record, allowing 41 hits in 43 total innings.
Even after the Astros went up five runs on the Phillies early in the game, the generational WS choke artist still couldn’t hold the lead. Now, he’s flipping off Phillies fans, and is scheduled to pitch Game 5 in Philadelphia on Wednesday.
If there’s one thing Philadelphia fans don’t do, its forget. Citizens Bank Park is going to be absolute madness over the next three days, and I’m sure Phillies fans will come up with a funny chant regarding Verlander.
Game 3 takes place tonight if the weather holds off…it doesn’t look good.
