Orbit realizes his courting of Kate Upton on Twitter is awkward now

Justin Verlander heading to the Houston Astros was one of the more high-profile MLB moves this week. But being in the spotlight is nothing new for Verlander.

On top of being one of baseball's best pitchers in his decade-plus tenure with the Detroit Tigers, he's also in what many would consider the most high-profile relationship in baseball.

Verlander is engaged to supermodel Kate Upton. Upton has many fans -- 5 million Instagram followers and 2.3 million Twitter followers, to be exact -- but one in particular has put himself in a bit of an awkward place:Astros mascot Orbit.

Now that Verlander is with the Astros, Orbit will have to be more careful. Maybe a public apology would do just the trick.
