Justin Verlander is arguably the best pitcher in the Majors. So, it makes sense that he would date arguably the hottest girl on the planet. 

The MLB playoffs have arrived, and it only took a whole season to get here. Once again, the best player on the bump has been Justin Verlander who could take the 2012 Cy Young Award and call it all his own. 

He brings a close to the season with 17 wins, a 7.5 WAR and a 1.06 WHIP. The man was a treasure for another season, and he may be more of a success story off the field than we know. 

One of the biggest rumors this year is the Tigers' ace dating Kate Upton, the supermodel who took the world and called it her own with this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

Back in July, multiple reports stated Kate Upton and Verlander were spotted around the Detroit area, fueling speculation the two were dating. 

Then came more smoke for the fire this past September when Busted Coverage ran a report that the two were again out and about in the Detroit area, being all cute and stuff together. 

Yep, Kate Upton and Justin Verlander are still dating and going strong. While Upton has gone quiet since Detroit went nuts over the possibility of their ace dating the most notorious swimsuit model of a generation, it seems things are moving along just fine with baseball’s royal couple.

So are the two an item? It certainly looks to be the case. If not, it certainly doesn't suck to be linked to the hottest person on this planet. 

Will this help the Tigers' ace in the playoffs? No, but it will certainly help aid his sorrow if he comes up short in October.
