Justin Verlander's Throwback Thursday has wife Kate Upton and others talking

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Justin Verlander is cuter now than when he was in Detroit.

That's according to wife Kate Upton, who says a side-by-side matchup of Verlander's team photos show a handsomer pitcher emerged once he got to Houston.

Verlander posted the two photos on Instagram Thursday. Fifteen years and more facial stubble separate the two Verlander photos.

"My wife said I'm hot in both... but 'kinda dorky hot back then,'" Verlander writes.
