More bad news for Uber: Justin Verlander is tired of its fickle rates.

Among several forms of backlash against the car-share taxi company are growing criticisms of its sudden and dramatic rates increases that can take the standard rate and increase it by several multipliers -- three, four, five times the normal rate, and sometimes more.

Those charges make Uber far more expensive than a regular taxi service and other competing companies, including Lyft.

So Verlander is taking his business elsewhere.
