Putting together a game preview requires a bit of research. Even when the two teams are familiar, a good writer looks into more than just statistics. However, rarely does the Google search, “mustache typology” come into play. That is not the case for Saturday’s matchup between the Detroit Tigers and Oakland Athletics. Daniel Mengden and his handlebars will take the mound for the visitors, and we have to be sure we’ve properly ID’d his facial foliage, lest we draw the ire of hipsters and mustache enthusiasts everywhere.
Mengden will have a tough task, as he faces off against the Tigers de facto ace Matt Boyd in this one.
