Remember the scene in Stripes when the recruits get buzz cuts? That was the Mets’ clubhouse yesterday after David Wright showed up clean shaven. Shawn Green, David Newhan and Jorge Sosa had the most dramatic look.
Newhan jokingly protested, “but I have the best hair in the league.”
“Yeah, right,” said Green when told he didn’t look that bad. “Seriously,” said Tom Glavine, “it’s not as bad as I thought it would be.”
Glavine, Aaron Sele, Aaron Heilman and Jose Reyes were the lone holdouts. Glavine said he’d do it after the game; Sele plans to go home on the offday to get family portraits done, but will get trimmed when he gets back; Heilman and Reyes could get it done after BP.
Best line: “We obviously can’t do a drug promo warning againts peer pressure,” said Scott Schoenenweis.
