Tigers' Justin Verlander poses with a lot of money

Thursday January 22nd, 2015

Justin Verlander is in Detroit preparing for the Tigers annual TigerFest fan celebration, and for some reason that involves an unbelievable amount of cash.

The ace posted this photo of him with a huge lockbox filled with bricks of $100 bills, asking fans to guess how much is inside?

The new NFL Bad Lip Rading video is out and it is great

Those are all $100's... Guess how much is in there. #tigerfest

Why do the Tigers need all that cash for fan fest? Are they just going to leave a stack of $210 million on the dais to fill in for Max Scherzer?
