Indians Make a Major Upgrade...To The Team's Facial-Hair Rating

Chris KreitzerSenior Analyst IJune 19, 2008

If anyone thought this Indians season was depressing, well, things just got outstanding!

The Wigwamers today traded for Braves backup catcher Sal Fasano. You know, the Sal Fasano?

This 36-year-old journeyman has compiled a career .219 average through parts of 10 major league seasons. His career milestone was set in 1998, when he was second in the league in hit-by-pitches, with 16.

The main attribute he brings to this team is his outstanding facial hair. Whether it is a mustache, Fu Manchu, or goatee, Mr. Fasano consistently brings a finely manicured scruff each and every day.

When a team is struggling the way the Tribe is, the more hair on your face, the better. I will now go cry myself to sleep.
