Who Are All Those Mustachioed Men

The Sacramento River Cats finished off their season the other night with one more victory, leading them to their second straight Pacific Coast League championship and 4th in 6 years. After besting the International League champions from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the River Cats took home the much coveted Bricktown Showdown. Seeing that this is the triple-A affiliate of the Athletics I’m pretty surprised. If they have that much constant talent at the AAA level then why is it that the A’s are 22 games back from the Angels? Why is it that the A’s have totally blown the last few years much to my buddy Shanks’ chagrin? This year’s success appears to be related to something much larger than just the team itself. Much like how the Danny Glover led Angels had real angels in the outfield, the Sacramento River Cats had their own ethereal power. It seems the team grew 70s style porn ‘staches. Catcher Justin Konebler says the mustaches may have been the key component, “‘Stache and Bash, I guess that’s our motto for the season. It brought the team together.”
