November is a joyous time of year for mustache enthusiasts. Men everywhere grow 'staches in an effort to raise awareness for mens health issues.

The Bruins also enter November with a terrible record and one theory is that once they shaved their playoff beards they lost their power. In an effort to turn their season around, the Bruins are growing mustaches for Movember and we were lucky enough to get a sneak preview.

The Thornton

Hes a lover and a fighter and his style of mustache is perfect for both.

The Rask

Since the defense always comes up so small when he plays, he wanted a giant mustache.

The Seguin

If you have the inability to grow facial hair, the Seguin is for you. Look at how umm clean he looks? Give it a few years, kid!

The Thomas

The worlds most awesome man grew the worlds most awesome mustache! Behold The Thomas in all of its glory!

The Ference

If you are a hipster the Ference is for you. He grew this mustache before Movember because hes cooler than all of you.

The Horton

Horton is always smiling. Now his mustache is too. His stache brightens everyones day!

The Bergeron

Pick this mustache if you want to go from French-Canadian hockey player to French waiter! Make sure to talk with the accent. The ladies love it!

The Krejci

Like his performance, his mustache is small in the regular season but grows into a mighty force in the playoffs.

The Chara

He doesnt need a reason to look like a 1970s TV show cop. Hes Chara. If you have complaints, take them up with him.

The Boychuk

Get destroyed in style with this fashionable, macho beardmustache combo!

Pomeranz 'pretty comfortable' with potential move to bullpen

NEW YORK -- If Drew Pomeranz is going to be part of the Red Sox' postseason plans, the team will likely have a better idea about that question by Thursday afternoon.

Pomeranz, who was scratched from his final scheduled start on Thursday because of soreness in his left forearm and general concern about his 2016 workload, will throw a 30-35 pitch bullpen.

If he responds well, he could then see some relief action over the final weekend at Fenway to determine his readiness for the playoffs.

"Before we even begin to map out a potential relief appearance over the weekend,'' said John Farrell, "we've got to get through that next step.''

Pomeranz pitched well in his last start at Tropicana Field over the weekend, but has been dealing with some discomfort in his forearm.

"I've had some soreness here, late in the year,'' Pomeranz said. "I've thrown more innings than I have ever (before), so we kind of sat down and talked about the best course of action the rest of the way.''

Pomeranz described what he felt as "just some soreness, probably from never covering this time of the year. It's a spot I've never been in before. We just decided the best thing to do was not making this last start and talk about maybe sliding into the bullpen.''

The lefty is no stranger to the bullpen, having pitched there as recently as last season while with Oakland.

"I've had the benefit of doing pretty much everything (in terms of roles),'' he said. "I'm pretty comfortable in any situation. If they see me helping there, obviously, that's where I want to be. But I don't know if it's a sure thing. We'll have to see how it goes.''

Meanwhile, another sidelined starter, Steven Wright, is expected to rejoin the team in Boston Friday. Wright threw a bullpen off the mound earlier this week in Fort Myers as he attempts to come back from inflammation in his shoulder.
