  2. Does it matter when the Royals infield are poor fielders? Heaven forbid it makes it to right field with Guillen out there now.

  3. Actually, a moustache is the ONLY allowable facial hair under Yankee policy. You guys remember Don Mattingly, right?

  4. Was this written before or after Texeira was crushed to the tune of five runs by the Twins yesterday?

  5. Actually, I had a thick mustachio for the bulk of my time in pinstripes. Have you ever actually watched baseball? Have you ever seen a photograph of Thurman Munson?

  6. Well he said no HANDLEBAR mustaches, and I believe yankee policy is no facial hair below the upper lip. So the handlebar style would not be allowed due to the mustache’s boundaries being extended beyond the reaches of the upper lip.

  8. @Cuban Bee-

    First, your reading comprehension fails. You say he only refers to handlebar mustaches, but the following quote shows that you are incorrect: “And really, is winning without a mustache winning at all?”

    Second, you don’t know what a handlebar mustache is. They generally do not extend below the upper lip.

    Furthermore, Thurman Munson’s mustache was gigantic and went way below the upper lip.

    I reiterate my previous position that this columnist has never watched the Yankees play in his life, and should be fired from this sorry excuse for a website.

    Also, Cuba’s reports of 100% literacy have been summarily proven to be false.

  9. Handlebar moustache:

    Horseshoe moustache:

    The two are ofter confused (I should know, as I am currently sporting the horseshoe).

    I believe that Cuban Bee is right on the Yankees’ policy, so handlebar moustaches WOULD be allowed, while horseshoes would NOT.

  10. The Yankees rule is not no hair below the upper lip. It is mustaches only. How old are you idiots? Have you ever seen a picture of Goose Gossage? He’s got a big fucking mustache that goes down to the bottom of his chin. Why don’t you type him into your precious wikipedia and then try to classify his mustache. Is this a fucking sports blog? How is it that everyone on here is making ridiculously stupid statements that can be proven wrong just by having basic knowledge of what Hall of Famers on the Yankees look like?
