‘I’ll kick you out of this house if you don’t cut that hair’

Melky returns, but for what purpose?
Joba could return in a month

While Manny Ramirez may be hitting .565/.615/1.130 in the early going with the Dodgers, apparently a 341 OPS+ isn’t quite good enough for Joe Torre. In a piece that notes the $200,000 Dodger fans have spent on Manny merchandise in the past week, Deadspin scribe Rick Chandler reports that Torre would like to see Manny cut his trademark dreadlocks. Oh, Joe. When will you ever learn?

    Hasn’t anyone told him Manny derives all of his power from the hair?

  • barry

    Someone has to tell Manny how ridiculous he looks.

    Apparently Torre made some other player cut his hair, and he doesn’t want a double stanadard.

    On top of that I had read reports he already agreed to cut it….ahh Manny being Manny in laid back LA

    Hair effects ability to hit baseball, how?

      See Judges, Chapter 16. Like Samson, Manny must have dedicated his hair to God (or some higher power), giving him extraordinary hitting abilities.

    Darlin dont you go and cut your hair, do you think its gonna make him change?

    (I’ll raise you a 90s music “hair cut” reference.)

    i heard that manny flew his stylist out to l.a. on the plane with him so that he could get the haircut he promised.

    manny has a stylist? that guy must suck at his job.

    Supposedly Torre asked him right after the trade, and he said he would. Now I absolutely love Manny sticking it to the old geezer. Better that the Dodgers are going to start selling Manny wigs with hats attached. So now I love how they’re not paying Manny a salary and making mucho merchandising dough. Good times!

    Wow, those dreadlocks are really hurting the team chemistry and Manny’s performance. They represent the thuggery of the rap music. Damn that rap music!

    Jamal will like this–

    Manny’s RC/27 is 32.13 since the trade (yes, those decimals are in the right places).

  • Chris

    He should cut his dreds and sell them on ebay. He could make a ton of money for charity…
