Beyond the between-the-chalk-lines narratives, one of the biggest, most important questions for the postseason was simple: Who'd take the crown as having the Best Hair of October?
This is a loaded competition, considering Yuli Gurriel of the Astros is playing, as are the Indians and their plethora of solidly styled 'dos. But as we saw on full display in the Cubs' 3-0 win over the Nats in Game 1 of the NLDS presented by T-Mobile, Washington first baseman Adam Lind is now firmly in the running thanks to this bleach-blonde look:

This is a look Lind clearly had going for a while now, considering this image is from late September:
But he's definitely re-upped the dye in time for the postseason, so this battle might go down to the wire at this rate.
Be sure to tune into Game 2 of the NLDS Presented by T-Mobile on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. ET on TBS.
