Move over Sports Putz, the Post’s Uncle Phil is experiencing a level of pop culture tourette’s that makes Larry King look hip by comparison.
Chone Figgins (above, left) remains such a dead-on dead ringer for Willie Randolph (right) that after more than 20 years of running lookalikes it’s an all-time Top 20, up there with Darryl Strawberry and Dino the Dinosaur, Vin Scully and George Jetson, Buck Showalter and Elroy Jetson, Colin Montgomerie and Bill Parcells and Peter Gammons and Andrew Jackson as seen on the $20 bill.
Wow. Here’s a few more lookalikes for Mushnick to consider : Kenny Lofton and George Peppard. Stiv Bators and Imelda Marcos. Joel Sherman and Gore Vidal, Snowy from Herge’s “Tintin” and Brian Cashman. “Big Love”‘s Chloe Sevingy and world-class competitive eater/rapper Eric “Badlands” Booker.

Randolph is more Grandmaster Flash than he is Chonemaster Figgins, I think.
I love the idea that someone Googling for recent mentions of Stiv Bators would end up here, and see the name one word away from “Imelda Marcos.”
ESPN’s Page 2 was the best at this for a while, they seemed to think that every African-American baseball player in the majors somehow bore resemblance to either Omar Epps or Nelly.
No mention of Craig Finn?
Lookalikes — Phil Mushnick of the New York ComPost and the restaurant critic in “Ratatouille”. Two hopeless megalomaniacs, one animated, one real.
Vlad Guerrero and Byron Long, from the neck up. Maybe the folks at On The DL can give us the low down on what’s going on below the equator.
Here is my look-“A-likes contribution” 🙁 Mets reliever): Scott Atchison and (Dodger Legend): Duke Snider.
