The Bleacher Report
As the reigning Cy Young award winner and AL Most Valuable Player, Justin Verlander is going to have a difficult time improving on his season from a year ago.
However, if there is any player in the major league that could do just that, it is Verlander. With an unparalleled work ethic and drive, Verlander is on a mission for one thing: a World Series championship. If along the way he is able to improve upon his 2011 as he accomplishes that mission, Verlander and the Tigers, as well as every Tigers fan across the nation, will be ecstatic.
Verlander is not your everyday baseball player. He has freakish athletic ability and drive, which are two important characteristics that are necessary to improve upon such a stellar and impressive 2011 campaign.
