Verlander's comical balk

Like many fans (and reporters for that matter), I have a limited understanding of the MLB's balk rule, but it was plain to see whatever Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander did Saturday night against the A's couldn't have been legit. It's worth a good laugh, even. Verlander said he realized he couldn't go to first and his instinct forced him into the quick-pitch situation where he even hit the batter, David DeJesus.
