DateQuestionAnswer
2012-01-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)If you had an "all facial hair" HOF, who would be in your initial class: Bruce Sutter, Jim Kern, Al Hrabosky, others?
(dianagram from NYC)
All of those guys would be in eventually but the reliever standard still starts with Rollie Fingers, and I'd want to balance the distribution out so it wasn't all 1970s guys. As the 1994-2005 period was to homers, the Seventies were to facial hair. (Jay Jaffe's Hall of Fame Special)
2010-10-12 12:00:00 (link to chat)Best (worst) baseball beard: Jim Kern, Jayson Werth, Brian Wilson, Al Hrabosky, other
(Beards 'R Us from USA)
Kern had the barely visible mustache, which is a little weird I think. Werth's is great but I think he makes the goatee a little too prominent. The Mad Hungarian gets big style points, but his style has gone out of fashion. I think Bruce Sutter's beard was best. (Tommy Bennett)
