To Beard or Not to Beard

That is the question. Let’s do what we do best: argue over matters of utmost importance.

What looks better?

Exhibit A: Daniel Norris

Exhibit B: Dallas Keuchel

Exhibit C: Sean Doolittle

Exhibit D: Derek Norris, pissed vs. really pissed

Exhibit E: Jake Arrieta

Exhibit F: Danny Espinosa

Exhibit G: Craig Kimbrel

Exhibit F: Bryce Harper (@professormaddog31, you know you love him)

Exhibit G: Brian Schlitter

Exhibit H: Kevin Quackenbush:

Exhibit F: Brian Wilson. I know he didn’t pitch in 2015. I forgot what is underneath that thing.


“If you notice, the people with the big giant beards usually aren’t the best looking fellas,” Wright said, laughing in an article last year for USA Today. “If you’ve got a beard you’re obviously trying to hide something. That’s my take on it.”

I disagree with Wright. These men are not unattractive.

  1. I never understood the need to look like an NHL player during the playoffs. I definitely don’t agree with the Yankees and now Feesh with their “clean shaven” policy, but if you are going to have a beard, at least keep the thing trimmed enough that birds and small animals aren’t tempted to nest in it.

  2. Look Indy, we know you are getting older and you have to decide whether or not to let your beard fill in or keep it shaved, but I don’t think this post will help us give you advice.

  3. Maybe these fellows have beards because they look like their asshole fathers when clean shaven and don’t want to be reminded of him on a daily basis. I could be the only one that does it for that reason though.

  4. I had beard into my early 50’s, when the whole thing turned grey. Made me look so old I was afraid the company would retire me.

    I will start this by saying I am a happily married man and have remained well-behaved for my entire marriage. (many many years)

    But I got a lot more attention from the ladies when I had a beard than I did without.
