Want to know Justin Verlander's thoughts on the nude photos of him and Kate Upton that leaked out on Reddit recently? Well, sorry, but he's not going to talk about them.
Late yesterday, he spoke with a group of reporters about the photos prior to the Tigers game against the Indians. Or rather, he spoke out to say that he won't be speaking about them or his personal life now or anytime in the future.
"I'm not going to comment on my personal life," he said. "I never have, and I never plan on it. I keep my personal life personal. The focus for me is on the Detroit Tigers. I don't want to take any focus away from this team and what we're trying to accomplish. We're in the middle of a pennant race. We're trying to win a pennant. And all of my focus currently is on doing whatever I can to help our team win our division."
In other words: Don't ask Verlander about the photos. Or Upton. Or anything except baseball. Okay?
