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:

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.
