Delmon Young’s mustache is now better than his bat

Jul 27, 2012, 2:52 PM EDT

Delmon Young is having another disappointing season, hitting just .269 with a .296 on-base percentage and .407 slugging percentage in 90 games for the Tigers while being paid $6.75 million.

Once a top prospect, Young is now 26 years old with 3,335 career plate appearances in the majors and a .425 slugging percentage, which is pretty awful for a bad defensive corner outfielder who also has a .318 on-base percentage.

However, all of that matters little compared to the glorious mustache Young has been working on and unveiled in all its glory last night:


And, yes, this is a slow afternoon for news, but it’s also a helluva mustache.

    That moustache is not on purpose but a result of Delmon’s lack of patience when shaving.

      I clicked thumbs up a bunch of times but it only gave me 1. Nice work.

    If he’d square it off some, it would be perfect for him.

    Gleeman – let’s see the beard.

    Vernon wells would be proud. I am begging to think they are one in the same. Both have terrible plate dicipline and both are over paid (granted Wells far more). Based on the picture above they look erily similar.

    That mustache already rode Dave Winfield’s upper lip all the way to the Hall of Fame

    I didn’t even click on this until I saw it in person tonight. Couldn’t agree more.
