I just became acquainted to this Justin Verlander/Kate Upton leak thing, and oh boy....it defiantly happened.


All I will say here on this 'family accessible' site is Mr. Verlander went from having a bad year professionally to having the worst year of his life. He has become a joke overnight and will likely never be taken seriously again. I almost feel bad for... *looks at multitude of pictures*...oh, nevermind.



BTW, this is not intended to be vulgar or inappropriate in any way. This is just meant to start a discussion about this situation which is connected to a Major League pitcher. If it is deemed too inappropriate for TD, I will remove this Topic if asked.

Moderator's note.For the moment, I agree with this as a legitimate baseball topic, but be forewarned a conservative approach to moderating can be expected. 


No photos; no links, please.That's what Google's for (been there done that already :) ). 


Post like adults; no wait, my youngest son is 21, act like you're older than that. No, Verlander himself is 31, so maybe the bar should be set above that.

Nothing is so annoying as someone going on talking when I'm interrupting.

Well, it definitely has to be an unwanted distraction during a pennant race. No doubt about that.

His next start should be very interesting.

The lesson is don't take photos like that unless you don't care if the whole world to see them.  Large companies have whole departments that work computer security, and they sometimes still get hacked. Your cell phone or laptop is easy pickin' if someone really wants the info. 


For most of us, the whole world wouldn't want to see the photos, so it's not as big a concern.

Omg. Those are some x rated pics. No wonder he is pitching bad. If i were justin, I would retire and buy an island and never leave her side...yikes. What in the world would posses someone to take pictures like that?

That could liven up the slide show at the wedding reception -- if they get that far.
