You Say "Must" -- I Say "Ash"

Let me add a little explanation for my fascination with ballplayers with the horseshoe mustache. It's a lot like Dinged Corners' love of players with big smiles, I just simply enjoy them.

Here I am giving my best "3 balls, 2 strikes bottom of the ninth I'm going to strike you out stare down."
