Verlander slides down the latest computer ranking of American League starters

Justin Verlander, who held the top spot in the last computer rankings of AL starting pitchers as calculated by Bias Free Sports, fell five spots to number six, as Jake Peavy took over as king of the hill this week, followed closely by Jered Weaver of the Angels, Colby Lewis of the Rangers, and Jason Hammel of the Orioles.  The Orioles, long dormant in the AL East, have two pitchers in the top 20, with Wei-Yin Chen pulling in at 17.
