Ranking The Chris Davis Mustache Vs. Other All-Time Orioles Greats

You may have noticed that Chris Davis is on a tear, elevating his season HR total to 30. The Chris Mottram lookalike’s OPS+ is up to 134, the second-best of his career. You may have also noticed that thing on his face:

The Orioles slugger had let his beard and mustache go until it was threatening the Orioles’ strict no-beard rule, so he shaved the beard but kept the mustache.

And it looks terrible. But he can’t shave it off now.

A player on a streak has to respect the streak, you see. So, since it appears Crush’s little friend may stick around, we asked Doug Ramey (@fatpickled) to weigh in. Doug is a bit of an expert on the subject, given that he authored “The 12 Best Mustaches in Orioles History” on this very site.

Here’s what Doug had to say:

“That furry caterpillar is impressive — it almost looks like he’s wearing a disguise. It’s also comical how it looks when he has one of his over-the-top lippers in.

In order to crack the top 10 I feel it needs to last 30 days … the other guys on that list rocked the ‘stache for entire seasons. That being said, if the ‘stache has legs and lasts awhile it has top-five potential.

I do deduct points for the flavor saver he has accompanying the ‘stache. Just because his buddy Chris Tillman is still rocking a flavor saver eight years after they were out of style (if they ever were) doesn’t mean he has to add that as an accessory to his already impressive lip fur.”

It was a bomb, too, easily clearing the 420 sign in center. Watch it here.

Oh yeah and the O’s won 3-2. Two back in the Wild Card with 12 to play.
