Tigers-Yankees: an observation

Okay, the Yankees just took a 3-2 lead over the Tigers in the 6th inning, so I know other things should be on my mind. But there's one thing I just can't shake while watching this game.

What is the deal with Jason Giambi's mustache?

Is the idea to look like Clu Haywood from Major League? (Or does Sal Fasano already have dibs on that?)

When did that thing pop up? I obviously haven't been watching the Yankees play the last couple of weeks - at least not since they swept five games in Boston. Has this been in the works for a while?

Now if only Joel Zumaya can play the Ricky Vaughn role late in the game...

    I got the YES Network feed on MLB.com this afternoon and the announcers said that Giambi's 'stache is in homage to Yankees hitting coach Don Mattingly - who had one his entire career but shaved it earlier this year.

    Even the announcers were at a loss to figure out how a commemorative mustache for a guy who no longer has one makes any sense.

    Personally, I think Giambi looks more like Yankees pitching coach Ron Guidry. Which raises this question: When did Ron Guidry stop looking like Ron Guidry?
