Sabeardmetrics

(Thanks to Dusty Baker for the tip!)

The evidence, and the graphs, are incontrovertible:

My beard is batting .108 right now

I had a full-on homeless man's goatee a couple of weeks ago. That thing had a UZR of almost 12. Chicken wing sauce couldn't get past it!

If only I could channel the pure power of my own beard (think African Wilde beast) North where my hairline is puny and weak. Sigh.

Excellent analysis but unfortunately Casey Blake disproves the Sabeardmetrics theory.

I grew a Sugar Bowl beard (admittedly, I'm 0-1 with it now) but haven't shaved it yet. I'm thinking I'll keep it for awhile now, though it came in very gray (cries). Maybe it will get me an invite to Spring Training?

@theblade - Clearly, Casey needs to up his doucheness quotient to complement the beard. In baseball, you have to have a good defensive beard and plenty of offensive doucheness to win it all.

That's why Bonds never got a ring, no beard to back up his HOF-level doucheness.

So, taping gorilla bush to your face equals championships?

@theblade not yet...remember plenty of teams which haven't been favorites, have won the WS

ps: optimism is on full mode, spring training hasn't started yet!

Today I was in my office and looked up at the bobbleheads currently on my bookshelf. Loney, Ethier, Kemp, Broxton, and Blake. All are depicted with facial hair.

What does it all mean?

I like how the bottom graph is in 3-D - it really helps communicate the data.
