The Outside Corner:
Sometimes the Movember MLB Mustache Madness bracket can make for strange bedfellows. Our next round 2 matchup pits a plodding catcher versus a speed demon outfielder. Normally that would give one entrant a huge advantage, but not with mustachioed mastery on the line.
Corky probably couldn't ever throw out Pierre on the basepaths, but he can exact his revenge now by riding his big, beautiful horseshoe mustache to another victory, after all, he did make short work of Jason LaRue with a whopping 88% of the vote.
Pierre has 16 career home runs, but he knocked one out of the park by dominating Travis Snider with 76% of the vote in the current player outfield matchup. He best hope his power mustache still has some more pop in it.
Time to vote! (one vote per matchup per day)
