The biggest star of Tuesday night’s 2012 MLB All-Star Game, unsurprisingly, was Kate Upton.
Be it because of how insufferable baseball’s mostly irrelevant and yet still somehow way-too-consequential Midsummer Classic is, or be it because of Upton’s inexplicable Love Potion No. 9-esque allure – the only thing worth discussing coming out of yesterday’s festivities was whether or not she and Justin Verlander were an item of some sort.
Thanks to some solid investigative work from Eric Goldschein of SportsGrid, here is some stuff that may or may not indicate that something may or may not be going on:
1. Upton was spotted in Verlander’s suite at a Tigers game over the weekend — apparently boozing, no less.
2. The two were seen together last Thursday, taking in the sights and shrieks of an Aerosmith concert. There are only two ways to enjoy an Aerosmith concert: with a group of your closest bros/babes, or with a significant other. Or maybe with your dad. That’s it.
3. After the concert, they were kinda, sorta photographed at a bar. (Busted Coverage has the photos, along with a boatload of other pictures of Upton looking gorgeous). And according to CBS Detroit: “Staffers at Coyote Joe’s in Shelby Township, at 22 Mile and Ryan, confirmed the duo were very chummy Thursday night. … But witnesses at Coyote Joe’s said Upton was “hanging all over” the ace.”
So there you go. Facts are facts. They’re basically married.
