Justin Verlander: Richard Sherman would get thrown at if he played baseball
If Richard Sherman played baseball, Justin Verlander knows exactly what would happen to him.
The Detroit Tigers ace pitcher sent a tweet after watching Sherman’s antics at the end of the NFC Championship Game on Sunday and said Sherman would get a “high and tight fastball” if he played baseball.
So Russell is a class act! Sherman on the other hand…. If he played baseball would get a high and tight fastball.

That was the money part of his tweet. The overlooked part is that Verlander called Russell Wilson a “class act,” which is a nice compliment to the Seattle QB and pretty much how most people view him.
The thing about Sherman, though, is that you could give him a brush back pitch or two, but he’d confidently step back into the box and hit a home run. He only gets away with talking trash because, dang, he’s been backing it up on the field all season.
