The Outside Corner:
I guess you could say that this next Round 2 Movember MLB Mustache Madness matchup has the market cornered. The first round winners from first base and third base will now vie for the current player corner infielder mustache title.
Giambi's career may be on its last legs, but his mustache has clearly still got it as evidence by him earning 86% of the votes in his first round battle. Is there still enough life left in his old whiskers to topple Jose Bautista?
Joey Bats batted around Eric Chavez by a score of 71% to 29% in Round 1, but he'll have to hope he can outslug the 'stache of the Giambino now.
Time to vote! (one vote per matchup per day)

Time to turn two in Round 2 of the Movember MLB Mustache Madness current player bracket. Our two remaining middle infielder representatives now have to try and avoid each others' whiskered takeout slides if they want to advance to the current player quarterfinals.
