Manny Ramirez has never been one to think the rules apply to him, and it looked like he was taking the same approach with his new team's rule that players wear their hair short. White Sox chairman Jerry Reinsdorf made that decree, manager Ozzie Guillen said he couldn't care less about Ramirez's long dreadlocks, and there's been no indication that Reinsdorf has talked to Ramirez about it directly.
Nevertheless, Ramirez told reporters after his Chicago debut Wednesday that "it seems like everywhere I go, people want to talk about the hair."
When asked about whether he was willing to comply with team policy, Ramirez answered, "Why not?"
Of course, Manny being Manny, tomorrow his thoughts might be completely different. After all, on Tuesday he decided he speaks only Spanish, but on Wednesday his grasp of English apparently returned.
UPDATE: Whoa, this is one of those high-stakes news stories that just keeps evolving! According to the Boston Globe, a "barber to the sports stars" who goes by the moniker Montro will be cutting Ramirez's hair in Boston either Thursday or Friday.
