Adrian Beltre facts; the best of

The last week or so Twitter has been awash with #adrianbeltrefacts. They are kind of like the old Chuck Norris facts, but funnier. Beltre has become a cult figure in what is increasingly looking like a lost season of Red Sox baseball. How come? First off, he is pretty quirky, he swings (sometimes) from his knees and doesn’t like anyone touching his head. That and he is absolutely mashing the ball.

Here, for your viewing pleasure, the finest of the Adrian Beltre facts
