Mike Napoli needs no introduction for the beard contest. Last season he looked like a cross between the Happy Gilmore caddie and Thor. He’s cleaned up a little bit, but his face is still filled with bristled happiness. The Red Sox had a beard contest last year, which led to some impressive follicular states. Mike Carp grew a blonde chin strap that was reminiscent of a civil war general. And Big Poppy always has that close-chop style going on.
Grade: B+ (they were really good last year, but it seems that John Farrell doesn’t like beards and made them clean up a little bit)
