'UPTON GIRL'

Parody song written about Verlander-Upton

Over the last week, there has been a bunch of hullabaloo over the relationship between Tigers ace Justin Verlander and Sports Illustrated swimsuit goddess Kate Upton. The website Busted Coverage scrounged up some evidence of Upton “hanging all over” Verlander in Shelby Township this past weekend after the two attended an Aerosmith concert. Friday night, Upton attended the...

'This Time It Counts' Charade Needs to End as Players Openly Mock So-Called Importance of All-Star Game

Justin Verlander is arguably the best pitcher in the world right now. While there may have been some doubt as to who should have started for the National League, nobody had any issues with Verlander -- the reigning AL MVP -- taking the mound against the opposing league's best hitters.

Does Verlander deserve some criticism for last night’s All-Star performance?

Tuesday night Tigers fans and baseball fans for that matter saw something very uncharacteristic of Justin Verlander and that was him being tagged for five runs in the first inning of the MLB All-Star Game.

Justin Verlander and Kate Upton

Starring in Upton Girl. Is there any coincidence that right after news broke that Justin Verlander was dating MLB 2012 and Sports Illustrated cover girl Kate Upton, that Verlander goes out and gets trashed, giving up 5 runs in one inning in the all-star game?

Change the All-Star Game or Scrap It

It’s been three days since the last regular season game, and I feel like Homer Simpson with no TV and no beer. (“All I need is a title. I was thinking along the lines of… No meaningful baseball on TV makes Alex something, something.”) Back before national television contracts and interleague play, the All-Star Game was one of the only times that fans could see the greatest...
