Video pokes fun at Verlander’s relationship with Upton

The Internet is abuzz over rumors of a budding relationship between Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and model Kate Upton.

In one of the latest examples of the craze, a YouTube.com video pokes fun at the pair in song.

Some fans are worried the news is a distraction to one of baseball’s best pitchers. News broke of the relationship on the day of the All-Star game this week.

Verlander was the starting pitcher and lasted just one inning after one of his worst professional outings.
