Matt Harvey, Noah Syndergaard and Jacob deGrom have some truly gnarly mustaches

Maybe they're part of a new intimidation strategy. Or maybe the new facial hair looks, shown off during the Mets' Spring Training matchup against the Nationals on Saturday, are just the pitchers' respective entries in a contest to see who can grow the best, ahem, Metstache

If that's the case, we simply can't decide.
