Anyone who decides to heckle Justin Verlander or the Houston Astros better think twice.

On Saturday night, one fan at Guaranteed Rate Field decided to let Verlander hear it by yelling "You suck." Well, as Twitter user @jacobqualls3 captured, the Houston right-hander decided to respond:

Jaydo @jacobqualls3

This lady has been taunting Justin Verlander and astros saying “they suck” and Justin Verlander held up signs that said “no, you suck”😂 @blummer27 @JustinVerlander @JuliaMorales https://t.co/IaRVmdn4BN

The ex-Detroit Tigers star clearly doesn't care about making friends in the Windy City. This comes one day after Verlander feuded with Chicago White Sox shortstop Tim Anderson, who broke up his no-hitter in the fifth inning, for allegedly breaking an unwritten rule by attempting to steal bases while down by five runs.

Also, the heckler's claims cannot be backed up by facts. Verlander is a Rookie of the Year, a six-time All-Star, a four-time American League strikeout king, a Cy Young winner, an ALCS MVP and a World Series champion. Not to mention he has thrown two no-hitters. So no, he does not suck as a pitcher.

Oh, and Houston has won the first two games of the series against Chicago, 10-0 and 10-1, respectively.
