For more than a decade, Baxter the Bobcat was the official mascot of the Diamondbacks. As of Thursday, Baxter has a running mate. I present to you, the D-Backs Luchador:

No furry costume, no giant head. Just a mask, a cape and some spandex. That, ladies and gentlemen, is a mascot who means business.

Between the Marlins hosting a "Legends of Wrestling" night and, of course, the EOB Heavyweight Belt, baseball appears to be adopting a wresting theme in 2013. I can't say I disapprove.
