Jacob deGrom won’t have his hair chopped off after all
Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom said during the playoffs that his flowing locks were “driving him nuts” and that he intended to have them chopped off after the season. However, he has already had a change of heart on the matter.
Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News has the very important story:
BREAKING NEWS: Jacob deGrom has decided NOT to cut off his hair......everyone can breathe now.— Kristie Ackert (@ByKristieAckert) November 6, 2015
DeGrom said he will get it cleaned up, but not chopped off as he threatened. Also he and Noah Syndergaard think the Mets will b good in '16— Kristie Ackert (@ByKristieAckert) November 6, 2015
How long before deGrom and Noah Syndergaard get a shampoo commercial? I mean, really.
Marketing opportunities aside, there’s no need to mess with what’s working. After winning the National League Rookie of the Year Award in 2014, deGrom posted a 2.54 ERA and 205/38 K/BB ratio in 191 innings over 30 starts this season. He had a 2.88 ERA over four starts during the Mets’ World Series run.
