Marlins Will Make Jose Reyes Cut His Dreads

Good thing the Marlins are the only team in the MLB with an official barber, because newly signed Jose Reyes will have to sit down in Hugo Tandron's chair soon. Reyes has sported shoulder length dreadlocks for the better part of his career with the Mets, but the Fish have a team rule against long hair and they're be enforcing it against Reyes. Small price to pay for a $107 million contract we suppose.

"The answer is, there'll be team rules," team President David Samson told Yahoo! Sports. "Everyone follows the team rules, whatever they are."

So that means bye bye dreads, and apparently Reyes isn't happy.

"Last time u will see Reyes with dreadlocks in #Marlins uni, told team rule is shoulder length," tweets New York Post baseball reporter Jeol Sherman. "Not happy about hair, but is about money."

Manager Ozzie Guillen, obviously, has his own [bleeping] take on the matter.

"It's not my [bleeping] team," Guillen tells Yahoo!. "My job is to just make sure he scores a lot of runs."
