Manny Ramirez will trim his dreadlocks this week

Sep 1, 2010, 10:41 PM EDT

In case anyone cares — OK, everyone cares — Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe is reporting that new White Sox designated hitter Manny Ramirez will trim his long-flowing dreadlocks on either Thursday or Friday of this week to comply with his new club’s rules about overgrown hair.

How’d Cafardo get that information?  Manny’s barber.  Seriously. 

And what is Manny’s barber’s name?  “LMontro.”  Seriously.

Manny finished 1-for-3 with a single and a strikeout in his debut for the White Sox on Wednesday.  He hit .311/.405/.510 with eight home runs and 40 RBI in 196 at-bats for the Dodgers and is expected to serve as the everyday designated hitter for Chicago down the stretch.  And he’ll be lighter on his feet!  Or whatever.

    It’s 2010 for F**K sake. Does anybody really believe it matters?

    ENOUGH of Manny. Irrelevant to this race.

    Just like he cut them off to conform with the Dodger’s grooming rules?

    Thank you, Omega, I was thinking the very same thing. Can’t help but notice how they got even longer the last two years.

    Let’s hope that he isn’t related to Samson (Samson’s story is in the book of Judges in the Bible)

    His power numbers just dropped off the planet without steroids.
    His initial press conference was done in Spanish with Joey Cora as his interpreter even though Manny was born in NYC.
    What a complete asshole!

    Have you ever heard Jay Mohr talk about Manny being from NY? Hilarity. He grew up in NY with parents who grew up in NY, yet he has his press conference in Spanish. What a weird dude.

    I lived for a year in the neighborhood Manny grew up in in NYC (well, near the neighborhood, anyway). Spanish is practically as widely spoken as English there; I don’t find it at all hard to believe that he would’ve grown up not speaking English much and never learning it well.
