What does signing a $180 million contract look like?

Mar 29, 2013, 1:50 PM EST

Tigers director of media relations of Brian Britten snapped a picture of Justin Verlander signing his massive long-term contract extension with the Tigers:

I feel like I’d have probably worn a suit or taken off the hat or something.

    I’m rich biatch!

    Finally, JV is above the law!

    Hot GF. Cool dog. Plays baseball for a living. Shit ton of cash.

    It’s good to be JV.

      I’m 1 out of 4, so….I’ve got that going for me.

        I have a cool dog, too. And a hot GF at the moment, even if it is more of a friends-with-benefits short-term deal. Still, I’ll give myself a 1.5 on the JV scale.

        Which is nice.

      • historiophiliac - Mar 29, 2013 at 2:33 PM

        Wow, this thread didn’t turn into more info than I needed…

      Does he have a new girlfriend? I know he and Kate Upton stopped seeing one another. Probably because Verlander loves Taco Bell and Kate Upton has anorexia. Still, the man is the best pitcher in his league, got to tap one of the hottest supermodels on the planet, and now he gets to sleep on a bed made of hundred dollar bills at night.

        On what planet is Kate Upton anorexic? One of the refreshing things about her is that she looks like she actually bites the shit out of a burger sometimes.

      • paperlions - Mar 29, 2013 at 2:40 PM

        She is refreshing, isn’t she?

      • albertmn - Mar 29, 2013 at 2:47 PM

        tube – Do you actually know who Kate Upton is, or do you have her confused with someone else. She isn’t close to anorexic. Personally, I hope she keeps on a good path and doesn’t stumble down the Anna Nicole Smith path, who had a somewhat similar shape verybefore she got into drugs and/or went crazy.

      • kjericho43 - Mar 29, 2013 at 2:57 PM

        Not with Kate anymore? Must be hard to date 20 year-olds. I don’t envy JV….I mean of course I do. Let’s get real.

      • indaburg - Mar 29, 2013 at 3:07 PM

        I’m thinking now tuberippin might have been joking. I mean, since he is from Earth, he probably realizes the girl is no twig.

        @’lions — I think we might be using the word “refreshing” differently.

      • tuberippin - Mar 29, 2013 at 4:18 PM

        My bad guys. I forgot nobody understands sarcasm on the internet unless I write it like this so it’s clear I’m over-emphasizing what I’m saying in a facetious manner.

      • indaburg - Mar 29, 2013 at 6:11 PM

        Sorry, tuber. When I see the word anorexia, I kind of lose my sarcasm meter.

      • tuberippin - Mar 30, 2013 at 2:46 AM

        it’s all good. hits home for me as well, so i shouldn’t talk about it like that.

    He should have worn this suit:

  6. historiophiliac - Mar 29, 2013 at 3:11 PM

    Upon reflection, he could use an ochre sweater for such events. That would say “money.”

    • indaburg - Mar 29, 2013 at 6:25 PM

      His new “pet” says money:

      • historiophiliac - Mar 29, 2013 at 7:39 PM

        I saw that, but I do prefer Riley. :)

  7. midjerseyfatcat - Mar 29, 2013 at 3:58 PM

    His heart must have been under more stress when he went out with Kate Upton than when he signed that contract. Good for him on both counts!

    Good for JV. The Tigers had to do it, I guess. All he needs to do now is win a WS or two.

  9. chumthumper - Mar 30, 2013 at 9:33 AM

    Now he can buy himself a few more cars.
