Every year around this time, there is a trigger event that finally snaps me into baseball mode.
Last year it was the sight of Johann Santana long-tossing in the outfield on the first day of Spring training. The year before that it was grainy video of Daisuke Matsuzaka’s supposed gyroball.
This year it is a worthy cause that has finally woken me from my long winter’s nap.
The Wright Stache is a blog dedicated to a single goal — to convince Mets third baseman David Wright to grow a mustache.
And not for ironic or comedy purposes, mind you — there’s science involved. According to the below video, while the 2008 Mets outpaced the 1986 Mets in runs, hits, homers, RBI, batting average, and other important categories, the world champions boasted 11 mustaches to only 3 on last year’s team.
Clearly, there is mojo in the mustache.
So be it known from this day forth that Pax Arcana and his legions hereby endeavor to support the cause of convincing David Wright to grow a mustache.
