What's up with Justin Verlander?

For a number of reasons [a douche about not signing autographs, Kate Upton, yadda, yadda, yadda], I'm not feeling sorry for the guy - and as much as I can do so as a fan looking in, maybe I'm enjoying this mid-career crisis in 2014 where Verlander has struggled in first half of the season.

Maybe it knocks him down a peg, where he is humbled when he isn't the best pitcher in Major League Baseball - it makes for some drama to see this one time ace in flames, wondering if things straighten out for him anytime soon.

Verlander has to turn it around at some point, but maybe he had his prime years come and go - and now is sort of reverting back to being just another 'very good' pitcher as opposed to an untouchable world beater.
