Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander received the most first-place votes for AL Cy Young but lost to Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello by five points because two voters left Verlander off their ballots entirely.

Verlander’s supermodel fiancé, Kate Upton, took to Twitter ravaging the MLB and Porcello and prompting Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News to pen a column telling Kate Upton to “pipe down.”

Verlander fired off a series of angry tweets at Feinsand on Thursday:

In addition to getting skewered by Verlander, Feinsand also appears to be politically out of touch. Twice already this week, he has compared Cy Young voting to the Electoral College instead of finding the better comparison in Maine legalizing ranked-choice voting this November.

Has he seriously not been keeping up with former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic’s political activism?
