This Is Why I Can't Follow Sports Anymore

Seen on ESPN's website:

Justin Morneau added some luster to his MVP candidacy with a 5-for-5 performance in the Twins' 7-3 win at Fenway Park. Over the last 30 years, only four other players went 5-for-5 after already reaching the 30-homer mark: Adrian Beltre (2004), Alfonso Soriano (2002), Alex Rodriguez (1996 and 1998), and Andre Thornton (1984).
