Justin Turner fired off a great quote when asked to compare his beard to Dallas Keuchel's

On Tuesday night, the Astros and Dodgers will begin the World Series presented by YouTube TV (Game 1: 7:30 p.m. ET air time/8 p.m. ET game time on FOX).
Los Angeles (104-58) and Houston (101-61) dominated the National League and American League, respectively, making this a true battle of 100-plus win clubs in the Fall Classic. But the parallels don't stop there. Both teams also rely heavily on the contributions from heavily bearded players -- the Dodgers with third baseman Justin Turner:

... and the Astros with Dallas Keuchel. 

Asked at World Series Media Day on Monday to compare his beard to Keuchel's, Turner raved about the lefty's look, and also fired off a particularly amazing quote:
"The beards aren't throwing any pitches, or taking any swings. It's about the man underneath them." 
So, so true, and so perfectly put.
