Your Last Look at Jose Reyes’s Dreads

Taking a page out of George Steinbrenner’s grooming guide, Florida Marlins owner David Samson made it clear over the weekend that Jose Reyes, the team’s shiny new $106 million shortstop, would be forced to cut the dreadlocks he’s been sporting for most of his career. “The answer is, there’ll be team rules,” Samson said. “Everyone follows the team rules, whatever they are.”

And if he’s considering throwing a hissy fit like the one Hanley Ramirez threw in 2009 when the same issue arose, Reyes should be aware that the Marlins’ official barber is also a surly-looking ex-con.

We sure hope the 347 or so fans who watch games at Sun Life Stadium enjoy the new cut.
