Verlander is just a big baby about this because he's #1 in HR's allowed. Ball is not juiced, but manufactured better today with the core being more centered. If anything, it's due to pitchers throwing harder and batters consistently swinging for the fences..

I think he's right.

MLB buys Rawlings and the HR production shoots way up. More HRs = bigger ratings. I think it's pretty easy to draw a conclusion here.

Nothing wrong with (I love more HRs too!) that but once again a league and owners are insulting our intelligence if they don't think we know what's going on.
