USA Today Sports Kate Upton, Justin Verlander

Kate Upton is not accepting voting results…for the Cy Young Award.

The model is the fiancée of Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, winner of the 2011 AL Cy Young Award. Verlander was a finalist for this year's award, but he fell to Red Sox right-hander Rick Porcello, a former Tiger.

Verlander actually had more first-place votes than Porcello, but lost in total points:


Upton expressed her distaste for baseball writers with a NSFW Twitter rant:




She even dished some attitude to some fans:




Upton retweeted Verlander's brother, Ben, a Tigers minor leaguer:


There is a lot to digest here, but one important point: Verlander and Porcello used to be teammates. Porcello pitched with the Tigers from 2009-2014. Verlander was the team's ace, as he has been since his first full season in 2006.

On top of that, the NL Cy Young Award winner was Max Scherzer, another former Tiger, who pitched in Detroit from 2010-2014. Scherzer also won the AL Cy Young Award in 2013.

Could Upton be extra salty because two former teammates who used to pitch in Verlander's shadow won Cy Young Awards Wednesday? It's certainly something to think about.

P.S. For reference, Upton tweeted this about NFL players kneeling in September.
