Justin Verlander rocked again

Watch out, Detroit Tigers fans. In addition to Miguel Cabrera's nagging injury -- he's missed three straight games with a hurt left hip flexor -- Justin Verlander continued his confounding season on Thursday, giving up seven runs on 11 hits in six innings in a 7-4 loss to the Chicago White Sox. Now, the Tigers are far from doomed; they're still three games up on Cleveland in the AL Central. But one must wonder if something isn't amiss with the 2011 American League MVP.

Justin Verlander has allowed 12 ER in 11.2 innings since the All-Star break. How worried should Tigers fans be?
