Sports Illustrated cover girl Kate Upton must be feeling pretty jazzy today.

After reportedly being spotted holding hands with Los Angeles Clippers high flyer Blake Griffin, the busty supermodel decided to mock her former flame, Detroit Tigers ace pitcher Justin Verlander, on Twitter today.

Verlander and Upton, although neither actually ever confirmed it, were dating for quite a while before something caused the breakup, a breakup that Miss Upton has hinted she wasn’t exactly thrilled with.

So what better way to get your former beau back then on Twitter, of course.

During Upton’s relationship with Verlander, she became close with Frank Viola III – the son of the famed pitcher, Frank Viola. Being the kind hearted individual that she is, she decided to wish him a very happy birthday on Twitter today with an e-card that read:

Happy birthday to a friend of a friend who I now like more than the original friend

Not really a big deal, right? Well, except for the fact that Verlander and Viola are essentially best friends.

Either not wanting to deal with drama the tweet would bring or actually feeling bad, the blonde bombshell deleted the e-card a little while later and replaced it with a more typical happy birthday message.

Hopefully Verlander put on some Coppertone today because I think he just got burnt.

    I’m a 67 year old mother of 3, grandmother of 6. Never had writtten in before, but as a LONG TIME Tiger fan, Kate Upton really annoyed me. Shows absolutely no class in her twitter about JV. She’s perplexed why they broke up? Here lies her answer. Probably a “user”, going out with famous athletics, etc. to further her “career”. I say to JV ~ good ridence to her, you can do much better. Maybe you should have stayed with a nice girl like Emily.
