In case you missed it, Boston Red Sox pitcher Rick Porcello won the American League Cy Young Award on Wednesday night.

Kate Upton was not happy about that.

In a series of incendiary tweets (the first being NSFW), the model and actress questioned why her fiancée, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, didn't win the award despite receiving the most first-place votes.

On the bright side, Verlander seems like he had a pretty good year on and off the field.
