Kate Upton Gets Salty on Twitter After Fiancé Justin Verlander Loses Cy Young Award

Posted on

Kate Upton shared some choice words after fiancé Justin Verlander lost the American League Cy Young Award to another pitcher — despite the Detroit Tigers ace receiving more first-place votes.

In a scenario that draws comparisons to the recent presidential election, Verlander fell short to Rick Porcello of the Boston Red Sox, despite having 14 first-place votes for the award compared with eight for Porcello. However, a greater amount of second place votes for Porcello earned him a higher total score, according to ESPN.

The 24-year-old model, who got engaged to Verlander in May, stuck up for her man, going off on Major League Baseball and the writers tasked with voting.

“I thought I was the only person allowed to f—  ?!” Upton wrote on Twitter.

After questioning MLB’s choice of voters, she addressed a tweet directly to Porcello.

“Sorry Rick but you didn’t get any 1st place votes? you didn’t win,” she wrote, adding that MLB should fire the two Florida writers who left Verlander off their ballots completely, not helping his score.

According to a tweet by Ben Verlander, the younger brother of the pitcher, Verlander finished the season with a better earned run average, fewer hits per inning pitched and more strikeouts than Porcello. Upton retweeted his message to her 2.28 million followers.

New York Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard, who finished eighth in the National League Cy Young voting, had some fun with Upton’s Twitter rant.

“It’s OK Kate…I only got 4 votes…..total. Nobody likes me,” he playfully responded to Upton’s tweet.
