Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander likes Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
Cornerback Richard Sherman – not so much.
Reaction to Sherman’s postgame rant against Niners receiver Michael Crabtree – after Seattle’s victory in the AFC championship game on Sunday night – was fast and furious.
Verlander gave his two cents on Twitter.
So Russell is a class act! Sherman on the other hand.... If he played baseball would get a high and tight fastball.— Justin Verlander (@JustinVerlander) January 20, 2014
Verlander’s tweet, interestingly, was posted by none other than Kate Upton, and retweeted by Verlander.
