Man Muscles is Official

Man Musces!After going 3-for-5 last night against the New York Yankees (and only a triple shy away from the cycle), Joe Mauer is now eligible to win the batting title. Due to missing the first month of the season with some back pain following kidney surgery during the off season, it took until yesterday to reach the required average of 3.1 at bats per game to officially join the race. Oh, and he hit career high bomb #15 last night. Incredible.

Joe is still dangerously close to hitting .400 this year - as of last night he's still hitting .388 - well above #2 Ichiro Suzuki, who's batting .356 as of Tuesday.

National League leader Hanley Ramirez is sitting at .346.

Former teammate Torii Hunter was right when he predicted what Joe would do when he got his man muscles.

Batting title #3? Yes please.

He'll bat .400 no problem. And then he'll win the MVP AND the batting title. I'm not even joking a little.

Too bad the Yankees have your bitchass number this year!

Got mentioned on Rob Neyer's blog, good stuff!

Bronx Bombers, not sure why the Twins can't beat the Yankees this year. Yikes! As long as they can stay above .500 and dominate intra-divisionally, then it's all good. P.S. Mauer is out of control! That kid can hit. Period.

Ha! I know. I can't remember what article it was that pissed me off enough to get a commenting account, but it was a while ago. I'm ashamed.
