Snider taking it to the next level

Travis Snider has been up in the big leagues for parts of three seasons. Last year was his first as a full time starter, and he gave us flashes of his potential with a strong May that was cut short by injury and a spectacular September, when he hit .300 with 6 home runs. To date this season he's hitting .250/.357/.333. While the power isn't there, the walks are nice. I'm predicting massive, massive things from Snider this year, partly because he's gone from the picture to the left, to this:

Now that is one hell of a skeezy mustache. I'm pretty sure the creepy mustache is what made Carl Pavano useful last season. If a mustache can lead Pavano to a 3.75 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP, who knows what it can do for Snider.


  1. Sadly, Snider has shaved his mustache. Maybe that explains why he's in the midst of quite the slump to start the season.
