PHILADELPHIA (KYW Newsradio) — Is Phillies manager Rob Thomson one of the most handsome managers in Major League Baseball? His wife doesn’t think so.
Gambling.com recently compiled a list of the most handsome managers in baseball, and Thomson finished second behind Mets manager Buck Showalter.
According to Yardbarker, the list used the Golden Ratio Face app to compile scores, which ranks people based on their facial symmetry and structure — take that with a grain of salt.
Thomson and some Phillies players are in town this week for community service events. While chatting with media on Wednesday, he was asked about the list.
Thomson said his wife had a quick, witty response: “I came out and I said, ‘Hey listen, Michele. You know how lucky you are? I’m the second most handsome [manager] in baseball.’ And she was cooking dinner and she didn’t miss a beat. She turned around, she said, ‘So everybody else must have been tied for first.’ ”
Thomson got a good laugh out of it.
For what it’s worth, Giants manager and former Phils skipper Gabe Kapler ranked 12th.
