Isn't it time that the Yankees get with the times on things like this? Or do you think (c'mon, I know you're out there) facial hair and tattoos are another step down the anarchy ladder? I bring this up because I'm watching Johnny Cueto pitch, with his dreadlocks, and my mind got to wandering back to the days when the Reds were an aberration in the league with their insistence on black shoes, low stirrups, and no facial hair. I didn't care about it at the time because I was young and unable to grow facial hair. I would have undoubtedly seen it in a different light had I been older, perhaps been more of an A's fan, but it didn't click with me at the time.
I'm all for looking the way you want to look, by the way. It's just a matter of time before something like this gets brought up in the negotiations with the player's union, I believe.
