... and his 97 mph fastball and his creepy, creepy mustache.   Word is the mustache won't be around too long - the story I heard was that he was growing the mustache until he got to see his wife again. He hasnt seen her since Spring Training and she should be in Milwaukee when the Brewers come home. To give you his background (from Wikipedia): Axford was drafted by the Cincinnati Reds in the 42nd...
