Is Kate Upton Dating Detroit Pitcher Justin Verlander?

Los Angeles Times:

Kate Upton may have found herself a new man. That’s good news for many people — the new man (obviously), as well as fans of the New York Jets and whichever National League team ends up playing in the World Series.

But it could be devastating news for fans of the Detroit Tigers and the American League representative in the World Series, not to mention all those Tim Tebow fanatics out there just counting the seconds until their idol takes the field again.

OK, so Upton — the bikini model best known for appearing on the cover of the 2012 Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue and showing off her dance moves all over the Internet — apparently has been seen out and about in Detroit recently with Tigers ace pitcher Justin Verlander. Of course, the rumor mills have been churning furiously about the pair.

Verlander, the reigning AL Cy Young winner, is having another great season — so good that he was named the league’s starting pitcher in Tuesday night’s All-Star game. But what happened? Verlander got rocked for five runs in the first inning, and the NL rolled to an 8-0 victory, earning home-field advantage at the World Series in the process.

The rest here.
