Kate Upton swimsuit model defends partner Justin Verlander for Cy Young

Kate Upton swimsuit model defends partner Justin Verlander for Cy Young

Upton is correct in saying that this balloting reveals that baseball writers are clueless, but not for the reasons she's stipulated. As I've pointed out before, no starter should have received a single first-place vote. Zach Britton should have won by a country mile. His true WAR was just about as much as Verlander's and Porcello's added together, but the standard calculations for WAR don't have a proper methodology to calculate a reliever's value.

Britton did receive five first-place votes, so at least a few baseball writers actually paid some attention to baseball.
