Kate Upton Spouts Off To Writers Who Left Verlander Off Their Cy Young Ballot

By: Evan Jankens

Justin Verlander received the most first place votes for the 2016 AL Cy Young Award Wednesday night. He didn't win the award though, his former teammate and current Boston Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello won it.

He received 14 of the possible 30 first place votes, Porcello had 8. Two voters left Verlander off their ballot completely according to MLB Network.

Verlander's fiancee was not a fan of her man being left off of some of the writers ballots and decided to voice her opinion via her Twitter account using some NSFW language.

"Hey @MLB I thought I was the only person allowed to f--- @JustinVerlander ?! What 2 writers didn't have him on their ballot?"


Verlander's brother Ben also voiced his opinion saying, "Are you kidding me? Most first place votes and doesn't win? #SaltyYoungerBrother Explain this.."

Verlander eventually fell points short of Porcello -- and tweeted out a thank you to the writers who did vote for him.
