Marlins Will Make Jose Reyes Cut His Hair

Rules are rules. The Miami Marlins may be serious about spending money this offseason, as evidenced by the $106 million they threw at Jose Reyes, the $200 million-plus they are dangling in front of Albert Pujols, and the $58 million they spent on Mark Buehrle, but it would appear they are still serious about their clubhouse rules as well. As they did with Hanley Ramirez a couple years back — which seemed to infuriate him — the Marlins will ask Jose Reyes to cut his dreadlocks.

“The answer is, there’ll be team rules,” Marlins president David Samson said when asked about Reyes’ hair. “Everyone follows the team rules, whatever they are.”

According to one reporter, Reyes is not happy about having to lose the locks.  However, there are a lot of things you can make a guy do for a few million bucks.  Even Manny Ramirez chopped off his hair (or part of it) when he became a member of the White Sox, which leads us to believe that anything is possible.

What Reyes should do is donate the hair to Locks of Love like Colts punter Pat McAfee did.  That should help ease the pain of losing such an important part of himself.

Fist pound to Big League Stew for the story.

    Not everyone is born with blue eyes and blond hair and, yes, there are people who actually like – indeed – love dreadlocks and they are the people or people like them who would want used dreadlocks. Other kinds of hair is sold all over the globe and, as long as they come off someone’s head, they are used. So, why not dreadlocks? There are millions of people all over the world with dreadlocks who actually wash them regularly and keep them clean, just in case you’re thinking that all dreadlocks are kept dirty.
