On Cloud Conine

It’s time to play… Marlins Celebrity Lookalikes!

Last year, we had some fun pairing your favorite Fish players with their celebrity doppelgangers, which you can see here.

Marcell Ozuna and Kanye West… Mike Redmond and Dr. Cox from “Scrubs”… Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Hyde from “That 70’s Show”… the resemblance is uncanny.

With the 2015 season upon us, we’ve put together a whole new batch of Marlins lookalikes, starting with the obvious:

Christian Yelich = SNL cast member, Pete Davidson

Fair skin, big smile, closely resembling a teenager… they’re basically one in the same.

Tom Koehler = actor, Jeff Daniels

David Phelps = actor Jason Statham

Both Phelps and Statham have mastered the “Blue Steel” look. And check out those matching jawlines…

Andrew McKirahan = legendary Beatle, George Harrison

This off season Giancarlo Stanton signed the richest contract ever in North American sport. A possible $325 million over the next 13 years of his life.

But does that mean that it was a good signing over all? We’ll have to ask the numbers about that.
