Notice something odd about this life-size Justin Verlander bobblehead in Detroit?

Mainly, that it doesn't look like Justin Verlander? At all.

Backstory: Fox Sports Detroit is running an "April in the D" campaign, in which it created life-size bobbleheads of local in-season sports stars, such as Verlander, Detroit Tigers teammate Miguel Cabrera, Pistons basketballer Brandon Knight and a few others. The bobbleheads are scattered around downtown Detroit and people can go take pictures with them. Or whatever.

But the Verlander one is a head-scratcher. TV station WJBK (aka myFOXDetroit.com) rightly wonders if the big Verlander bobble looks more like teammate Alex Avila. Here is its comparison:

Avila is a good one. Here at The Stew, we have a few guesses of our own:

Noted ugly player and former Tiger Don Mossi. Yes, even he looks more like this bobblehead than Verlander:
