When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade.

When a Hall of Fame baseball writer accidentally votes for you on their MVP ballot, you don't question it.

Cubs reliever Ryan Tepera received one 10th-place vote for 2020 National League MVP due to an accidental click by Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Hummel told NBC Sports Chicago's Gordon Wittenmyer he meant to vote for Nationals shortstop Trea Turner.

Friday, Tepera tweeted a perfect response to the vote, which is sure to be the answer to a trivia question one day.

Kudos to Tepera for having fun with this. He's got a point, too, seeing as his resumé officially shows he finished 18th in the 2020 NL MVP race.
