Florida Marlins clean shaven relief corp

I didn't cover the story about how the Marlins bullpen were growing mustaches due to some text message Justin Miller got from Eric Byrnes or something like that.  If you want to checkout the original story, Photi has it covered at Fish Chunks .

As it turns out, that idea didn't last very long .

Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez gave each of his seven relievers a disposable razor after Wednesday's rocky loss and ordered them to shave the mustaches they had started to grow.

''I'm a believer in karma,'' said Gonzalez, who thought the mustaches were bringing bad luck to the bullpen, which was going fine until the Los Angeles Dodgers hit town.

So much for that idea.

Man, I love baseball.

Now if only someone can get Kevin Gregg a sharper razor, we should be back to normal.
