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.

"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.

(I cropped anonymous out of the pic in case he didn't want to be famous.)
