Verlander's secret to success is ... tacos?

Tigers ace Justin Verlander is coming off a big year. Not only did he win the AL Cy Young and AL MVP, but he also took down Roy Halladay in our CBSSports.com head-to-head smackdown in fan voting. Obviously the latter vote is the most important feat he could ever win, too.

Anyway, the now-highly decorated pitcher was on TBS' Conan Wednesday night. Among many other things, Verlander revealed that he eats Taco Bell before every start. Wait, what? Taco Bell?

Hey, whatever works. He might as well stick with it after that ridiculous 2011 campaign. Check out the video below.

The stock price of Taco Bell's parent company jumped up 2 points after interview.

Is Justin Verlander a major shareholder? Just saying...

He is pretty slim for a MLB pitcher. So only before you pitch you gorge yourself with over 4000 trans-fat laden calories? How many bathroom breaks are you allowed when on the mound?

What a stupid subject...

"As you can tell from my mid-section...." What mid-section? His stomach is flatter than Favre's butt.

Surely Conan let fly with the "It gives him gas" jokes.  Credit Verlander who could replace that cook Brian Wilson as a Taco bell pitch man...get it pitch man HAR-HAR.  Whatever happened to fourth meal??  Justin leave the Taco Hell for college students after drinking, you can afford better food.

He said it on a comedy show ... so it must be a joke, right? 

Well, we all knew beforehand anyway that baseball players were not the most finely conditioned athletes.

Burp.
