It's hard to tell exactly what the logic is, but Kate Upton joined B.J. Upton and Justin Upton on the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated.

It seemed that when all the Kate Upton connections had already been made after the Braves acquired B.J. and Justin, but SI had other ideas in their MLB playoffs preview.

B.J. is one of the Braves' highest paid players at $13 million this season, which is paltry in comparison to Kate's reported $82 million year, making her the highest paid American supermodel.

The performance on B.J.'s end hasn't exactly held up either, as he put up a .184 average with just nine homers this season. Justin has had a much better year with a .263 average and 27 homers.

Also, if the Braves are swept by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League Division Series, you can thank the Sports Illustrated cover jinx.
