That Mike Schmidt Nike Mustache T-Shirt You Have Is Now Totally Out of Style

That sweet Nike t-shirt you have featuring the silhouette of Michael Jack Schmidt's sweet hair and mustache is now totally outdated. Delco Times photographer Eric Hartline captured the above image of Schmidty down in Clearwater, Florida today and it clearly shows that the mustache is gone. The photo reminded us of that one time we asked the Phillies Hall of Fame third baseman about his 'stache and some of the other great facial hair in today's game.

From our interview with Mike Schmidt back in 2011:

Okay then. Have you seen the Nike t-shirt that features the
outline of your mustache on the powdered blue background with maroon
cap? Have you seen that?

Schmidt: No, I haven't?

They
have a nice line of t-shirts featuring some of the greatest mustaches
in baseball history. They have you, they have Rollie Fingers, they have a
couple of other guys…

Schmidt: Really? I don't know.
Mine sure doesn't stand out. It's funny you mention that, Fingers is
sitting right across the table from me right now and we were talking
about mustaches earlier today.

How about guys in the game today? Best facial hair in the game today? Jayson Werth's beard?

Schmidt: Off the charts.

Anyone else stand out to you?

Schmidt:
No. Sometimes I get a little taken back by some of the things I see:
earrings, tattoos, hair, stuff like that. Then my wife has to remind me,
'take a look at yourself back in the 80's.' Imagine some of the stuff
we had going. I had a beard. I played with a beard. I played with curly
hair. I played with a permanent. We used to all get our hair curled back
then so we used to just shake our heads and walk out of the shower. I
don't want to throw any stones at anybody today because if you take me
back to my youth, I made some of the same decisions.

Opening week affects MVP odds of Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid

Opening week affects MVP odds of Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid

Ben Simmons had himself a historic first week in the NBA and as a result, his MVP odds have changed substantially.

Listed by Bovada on Oct. 10 at 80/1 to win MVP, Simmons is now at 33/1, tied with DeMarcus Cousins and ahead of Marc Gasol, Blake Griffin and Damian Lillard.

Simmons became the first player since Oscar Robertson to produce at least 10 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in each of his first three career games.

Teammate Joel Embiid had a less successful start to the year, averaging 14.5 points, 13.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists in two games but shooting just 35.5 percent from the field and missing all 10 three-point attempts.

And yet somehow, Embiid's MVP odds have changed from 40/1 to 25/1. He has the same MVP odds as Karl-Anthony Towns and Kristaps Porzingis.

Griffin, at 50/1, is a sneaky good bet for MVP. The Clippers are his team now with Chris Paul in Houston, and Griffin has added long-distance shooting to his game, making three triples in each game. Two games in, he's averaging 29.0 points, 10.0 rebounds and 3.5 assists. 

If he can stay healthy (a huge if) and lead the Clippers to 52-plus wins in a loaded Western Conference, you'd have to think Griffin would be looked at more favorably in terms of MVP odds than someone on a star-studded team like any of the Warriors or Rockets, if Paul returns from his knee injury within a month and affects James Harden's stats even slightly. 

Giannis Antetokounpo and LeBron James look like the two players most likely to win MVP, but 50/1 for Griffin is good value if you think this is the year he stays healthy. If he didn't have a history of injuries, his odds right now would be closer to those of John Wall (28/1) or Towns (25/1).
