There can be only two possible explanations for the Hague-worthy crime currently taking place on Jason Giambi’s upper lip:

Look away! LOOK AWAY!

Either he thinks that its gruesome presence will distract any nosy reporters from even noticing the suspiciously puffy face surrounding it, or he is hoping it will turn anyone who dares look too closely at his water-retaining visage immediately to stone, thus effectively preventing them from asking any probing questions about his, um, training regimen.

Either way, this is clearly the facial hair of a desperate man.

***UPDATE: Jason Giambi was planning to shave off his mustache Monday night anyway, but when he saw the clippers during the game he figured there was no point in waiting any longer. So after striking out in the first inning, Giambi went back into the clubhouse and emerged a little later sans ‘stache, hoping a change in facial hair might help spark a change in his results at the plate.

— New York Daily News

***UPDATE UPDATE: It didn’t help. Giambi went 0 for 4 with 2 strikeouts on Monday vs. the Royals.
