At this point, I can only assume that the source of Adrian Beltre's success comes from a magical amulet located under his scalp. And that every time someone rubs his head, some of its power is reduced. 

That can be the only explanation for Beltre getting so furious so often when people try and touch his head

On Sunday, Astros mascot Orbit got in on the fun. And he did it just like he was on a long car ride with a younger sibling: By never actually touching Beltre's head.

I think we can all agree that the air spank was an artistic flourish.
