Justin Verlander owns the A's; so says their Wikipedia page

The Oakland Athletics Wikipedia page had a few modifications Thursday night during Game 5 of the ALDS. And one says the owner is Tigers ace Justin Verlander.

After eight dominant innings in his Game 5 win, Verlander now owns the following line for his career in Oakland, including both regular season and postseason: 0.30 ERA, 0.60 WHIP, 37 strikeouts, six walks, 30 innings pitched. So, judging from this pile of stats, it's easy to believe the not-always-so-factual Wikipedia — at least figuratively.

Here's a photo of the page from CBS Sports with the literal proof:

That's 30 innings of domination against the A's in the Coliseum and — even after the error is corrected — you can still call Verlander the A's boss.
