Man Muscles! Mauer Is Almost There

Eye-black hotnessJoe Mauer has enough at bats to earn another American League batting championship, and pretty soon, he'll have enough plate appearances.

After going 3-for-3 with two walks Wednesday afternoon in the Minnesota Twins’ 5-1 victory over the Kansas City Royals, he spiked his batting average to .392, making him just eight plate appearances short of the 3.1 per game needed to qualify for another batting title.

Mauer, who already made catching-history by earning two AL batting trophies and can do pretty much anything besides rap, has manager Ron Gardnehire on his side.
"If I have anything to do with it, he’ll qualify," the Twins skipper said. "I don’t mind writing his name in there. He’ll get plenty of at-bats."
Man Muscles has nailed 14 homers, 44 RBIs and has walked 33 times this season. He also stole a base one time. He's kind of a , ya know.

Speaking of the Twins, here is one picture of many great ones I received via text message from our very own Marea the other day, while she was visiting Busch Stadium on her recent midwest ballpark tour. Awesome.

Let's get Denarded

Man Muscles is now referred to as the Baby Jesus in our house.
Also, anonymous Denard fan was pretty awesome.

Mauer is an animal. He didn't hit as many bombs in June as he did in May obviously, but that's alright. He's already halfway to the number of homers Twins fans have been DYING to see from him.

Last night, Joe Mauer was 3-for-3 with two walks in Minnesota's 5-1 win at Kansas City on Wednesday afternoon. It's the seventh time in Mauer's career that he's reached base safely at least five times in one game, but it's the first time he's done that this season.
