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
... 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.
