SJ - July 27, 2020

Houston Astros ace Justin Verlander was placed on the 10-day injured list over the weekend with forearm tightness after his first start of the season.  Rumors quickly took off that his injury was more significant than a forearm strain and he would miss the remainder of the season.

Verlander and the Astros denied that injury would keep him out for the rest of the season.  But that didn't keep Verlander and his wife Kate Upton from trending on Twitter.

There were jokes about the injury being due to overuse in his personal life.  And there were others blaming the injury on a Kate Upton curse, which followed him around at the end of his run in Detroit.

The Kate Upton curse seems like a longshot.  That ended he won a ring in 2017, although he didn't win any games in the World Series.  He then took home the Cy Young Award in 2019 making the curse even more unlikely.

But that doesn't mean Kate Upton isn't to blame for the injury.  In baseball we all know there are odd injuries that happen from time to time and I have an odd theory about Verlander's current injury.

I think there's a good chance he hurt himself picking up one of Upton's bras off the floor.  Hear me out, there's a lot of material and support required to assist her on a daily basis.

I think it's more than plausible that he underestimated the bra and strained his forearm in the process.
