Midway through Detroit starting pitcher Max Scherzer’s third outing of the season, we noticed that the big hurler looks a bit like one of our favorite ’90s cartoon characters: Doug Funnie from “Doug.” (It has nothing to do with Scherzer’s heterochromia, because Doug’s eyes are merely black dots.)

He’s not the only MLB pitcher with an animated lookalike. We think it’s because MLB pitchers are a very diverse bunch with players of all shapes and sizes. There’s fat guys, skinny guys, ugly guys and dorky guys. Check out the roster.
