On August 12th, in that monster extra inning game that the M's won (yay)... Adrian Beltre tore his sack. His ball sack.
Now I'm fuzzy on the details at this point, but he tore it in like the 9th INNING!!!! HE PLAYED ANOTHER 5 INNINGS WITH A HOLE IN HIS SACK!!!!!!!
HE SCORED THE WINNING RUN!!!!!
Imagine the testicular fortitude (sorry) that it took!
For this reason alone (his sick D at the corner helps too), I'm making Adrian Beltre the first ever nominee for the prestigious
HCM Man of the Yearaward. More nominees to follow.
Congrats Adrian, you deserve it!
