Detroit's Justin Verlander will be the starting pitcher in tonight's All-Star match in Kansas City.
Now that that is out of the way, here is a juicy, highly speculative rumour involving the Tiger and the Queen of the Cat Daddy, Kate Upton.
First this happened.
That's Kate at a recent Tigers game.
Then there was word that the Sports Illustrated sminsuit covergirl and Verlander were out at Coyote Joes, a downtown Detroit bar together. You can read about that here.
So what's the problem -- a smokin' swimsuit model who hates clothes, hooking up with a handsome all-star baseball player?
Apparently Justin Verlander has a longtime gal pal already.
Justin and his girlfriend, Emily Yuen, have apparently been dating since high school.
