Justin Verlander dropped so many F-bombs during his celebratory speech

Justin Verlander gives a locker room speech

The Houston Astros advanced to yet another ALCS by finishing off the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday night, and let’s just say Justin Verlander has not grown tired of being a part of the festivities that accompany the success.

Verlander was given the honor of addressing the Astros after their 3-2 win in Game 4 of the ALDS. The three-time Cy Young Award winner delivered an expletive-laden speech in which he dropped multiple F-bombs and joked about his brief stint with the New York Mets.

You can see the video below, but beware that it contains inappropriate language:

Verlander was with the Astros from 2017-2022, though he pitched just one game in 2020 and missed the entire 2021 season with elbow issues. He returned last season and won his third Cy Young and second World Series with Houston. The right-hander parlayed that success into a 2-year, $86.7 million with the New York Mets.

The Mets wound up being a complete disaster this season, which inspired them to trade Verlander back to Houston. Verlander now has a chance to win a third World Series with the Astros, so you can understand why he is so fired up.

Verlander got the win in Game 1 of the ALDS. He allowed just 4 hits and no runs over 6 innings of work. The 40-year-old will likely start Game 1 of the ALCS.
