What do New York Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard and model Kate Upton have in common? Well, Justin Verlander surely knows.

Picture this: New York Mets starting pitcher Noah Syndergaard, supermodel Kate Upton, and Detroit Tigerrs ace Justin Verlander are sitting around the dining room table discussing baseball, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, and life.

We know why Upton and Verlander are there, for they’ve been together for quite some time. But why is Thor, of all people, there?

Well, because understands Verlander’s current plight. He, like Verlander, was snubbed for the 2016 Cy Young Award.


On Wednesday, Boston Red Sox starter Rick Porcello took home his first AL Cy Young Award, barely edging out his former teammate Verlander.

Justin’s better half Kate — in the trusted opinion of many — took issue with the final result.

***Warning: NSFW language

Not only does she make a legit point, but it hit home for Syndergaard as he wasn’t even named a finalist for the NL version last week.

Don’t worry Thor, plenty like you. Perhaps not as many as Upton in all her glory, but you’re high on the totem pole.
