I have had this post in the back of my mind ever since Matt Garza came over to Chicago. Matt’s uncanny resemblance to various muppet characters is something I haven’t been shy about pointing out. But what about the rest of the team? It doesn’t seem fair to pick only on Mr. Garza, even if his muppety qualities are so strong. Today, therefore, I will be throwing a few more fellas under the bus… the Electric Mayhem tour bus, that is.
Keep in mind that some of these resemblances are physical, some are based more on personality. I think you can figure it out.
Darwin Barney – Rowlf the Dog
Justin Berg – Floyd Pepper
Kyle Smit (MiLB) – Beaker
Jeff Baker – Muppet Newscaster
(It’s the jawline.)
Carlos Marmol – Lew Zealand
Ryan Dempster – The Great Gonzo
Mike Quade – Dr. Bunsen Honeydew
Tony Campana – Bean Bunny
Carlos Zambrano – Animal/Sweetums
Kerry Wood – Kermit the Frog
