We Can't All Have Perfect Hair. Is It Time For Yovani Gallardo And John Axford To Change Theirs?

Adidas asked me to write a post this week talking about the "Top Grooming Moments In Brewer History." If nothing else, we could probably all use an opportunity to talk about something that's not injury or losing streak related. With that said, I hope they'll be ok with it if I veer off that path a bit.

You see, we appear to have a recurring theme going in game threads this season, especially when two specific pitchers are on the mound. In past years catcher Martin Maldonado or reliever Mark DiFelice served as the clubhouse barber, but neither of them are with the team right now and it's possible John Axford and Yovani Gallardo haven't cut their hair since they left.

Gallardo's long locks are pictured to your right. I was hoping to find a picture of him with his hat off but didn't have immediate access to one. In my opinion, his current style is closer to "getting long" than "getting out of hand."

How another man chooses to keep his hair is none of my business, but I would not be upset if John Axford decided to get rid of some of his. Here's a picture of Axford pitching on Sunday with hair approaching shoulder length.

As I just said, it's not really my job or place to tell these guys whether they should or shouldn't cut their hair. But maybe it's your place? Vote in the poll below.
