Exactly, they're trying to ban facial hair on guys that are too young to have pubic hair.
It should be interesting to see how quickly Joe Girardi loses this clubhouse. Given the fact that Miguel Cabrera and Dontrelle Willis have been stripped of their starting cast, I doubt they'll be too thrilled about a rookie manager barking out stupid orders at them and micromanaging meaningless details.
Even though I think facial hair bans are dumb - It's one thing if you're the Yankees or the Big Red Machine. 1. Those teams didn't (don't) suck. 2. The Reds/Yankees hair bans (at least in recent year) came from ownership as a marketing decision. The thought, however flawed, was that fans would be more likely to pay for a clean-cut bunch. These orders didn't come from Jeff Loria. They came from a rookie manager.
