Justin Verlander was the Cy Young Awardee in 2019, but that didn’t stop him from suing Major League Baseball for implementing juiced balls to increase offense. Although Justin Verlander has played the All-Star game of the season as the starting pitcher, the current 9-time All-Star has allowed a Major League Baseball high 26 home run this season before the All-Star break.

Overall, Major League Baseball players hit 3,691 home runs in the first half of the season and were on track to hit 6,668 home runs, which would smash the record 6,105 hits MLB had in 2017. MLB commissioner Rob Manfred admitted in June that baseballs this year have less drag because the core of the ball is better centered.

“It’s a joke” Justin Verlander said ahead of this year’s All-Star Game. “Major League Baseball is making a joke of this game. You own Rawlings, and you have Manfred up here saying it might be how they center the pill. You own the damn company. When another $40 billion company bought a $400 million company and the product changed dramatically, it’s no guess what happened.”

Justin Verlander added while ranting about Major League Baseball: “We all know what happened. Manfred, when he first came in, what did he say? He said we want more impetus. Suddenly he comes in, the eggs are juiced? It’s not a coincidence. We are not idiots.”

He was then asked if he felt MLB intentionally juiced all the balls. Verlander had an answer before the question was complete. “Yes. 100 percent. They’ve been using juiced balls in home run derby for ages. They know how it’s done. It’s not a fluke. I find it really hard to believe that Major League Baseball owns Rawlings and the balls just happen be juiced.

Despite the allegations, the Major League Baseball Committee completed a report in December 2019, “No evidence was found that changes in baseball performance were due to intentions of Rawlings (the company that makes the league’s official baseballs) or MLB and likely to manufacturing variability.”

Justin Verlander was well aware of Major League Baseball’s cheekiness, he told ESPN “I hate the way I feel out there, no matter who the slugger is, I feel like I’m constantly walking a tightrope because any slugger can go to the other court.”
