We'll admit it; we love Bat-girl. She would be our one and only Internet squeeze, if it wasn't for our desperate, wholly inappropriate cyber crush on Ashley Harkleroad. One reason that Bat-girl is the best: She recently gave us this, the Joe Mauer Fashion Spread from Travel and Leisure Magazine. Yesterday we told you how the Twins' catcher went 2-for-3 against the Dodgers to up his major league-leading average to .392. That prompted the Twins' Torii Hunter to say:
What Joe Mauer's doing is sick. He's 23 years old. What's he going to do when he gets man muscles?
Well, until that day, Mauer "can look stylish in a black long-sleeve horizontal stripe sweater and black high twist mini herringbone flat front trouser in the spectacular El Yunque Rainforest, home to cascading waterfalls and lush foliage." Or, he can "stop for a refreshing fresh fruit drink at one of the many roadside stands in a pool long sleeve crinkled white shirt."
One can almost hear Mauer say, as Bat-girl surmised in one of the captions: "Hello, ladies. I am Johan Santana's battery mate."
We found the Batgirl post via commenter Dr. Kenneth Noisewater, it should be noted, which is still one of our favorite commenter names.
