The team had no talent and has accomplished nothing since, so yeah, they're the Flukes, and shall be called thus forevermore.
The Flukes might have accidentally taken the World Series because during Spring Training, their retarded Rally Monkey farted on several team members.

(To tell a story without it seeming boastful): "Well, the whole thing was a fluke really. Back in early Spring, I..."
