Name That Player #4

"Preserve Jon" leads "mikethemacguy" 2-1 but there is a loooooong way to go until the regular season starts so it's not too late throw your hat in the ring. The next few "NTP" posts will be picture oriented because we don't want to discriminate against the illiterate. They also will be a little more difficult than the first but don't get discouraged, we will give hints if no one gets it in a few hours.

This Phillie had a mustache and played in the 80's. Name That Mustache Player!

Dickie Thon?

Corey said...

both had great mustaches in the 80's but not the player we're looking for.

Andrew said...

so many mustaches... so little time...

My new guess is Rick Schu!

Andrew said...

hold up, wrong gross.

After careful mustache comparison, I think its Kevin Gross.

Preserve Jon said...

I agree with Andrew and go Kevin Gross

mike the mac guy said...

Nice job Andrew, I think you got the right Gross this time.

Preserve Jon said...

Of course, I could go with the shotgun approach and hedge with Lance Parrish.

mike the mac guy said...

Keep Lance Parrish on deck - might be the next question. ;-)

Not as many decisions to make on position players as I thought.

whoohooo! On the board! That was a good one. I never realized how many 80s players had the stach until I started running google images on them.

mike the mac guy said...

I should have googled, I went with Thon from memory. I'll have to improve my 'stache research techniques.

I first guessed Mike Maddux when I saw it, and had to ask Corey for the answer. I love this new offseason feature.

mike the mac guy said...

BTW I just discovered a cheat! Just now I dragged the 'stache image from your site onto my desktop and lo and behold - the name of the image is kevin_gross_mustache.jpg! In all fairness Corey, make sure you rename your files to keep me from cheating, I won't be able to help myself next time. Fortunately I'm the only one devious enough to think of this (albeit too late....) lol

The 80's were all about greed and excess and cocaine and mustaches. Oh, Members Only jackets were pretty popular too.
