Look, it's not out of the ordinary for a player to experiment with a new look during the off season. But when you make an appearance looking like a completely different person…people are going to take notice.
So when Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus showed up at the team's "mini-caravan" in West, Texas on Saturday with a robust chin curtain…you can only imagine the comments.

It wasn't long until the internet took over…comparing Andrus to everyone from Abraham Lincoln to a member of Al Qaeda. Even the 25-year-old's former teammate in Texas, the very bearded first baseman Mike Napoli had something to say.
