Randy Johnson has had a tremendous impact on the San Francisco Giants' pitching staff, but not because of his experience and wisdom. It's because he has youngsters like Tim Lincecum believing in the power of the mullet.
Seriously, have you seen that thing lately? It's glorious! The 25-year-old already has a Cy Young under his belt, but his 2009 season is shaping up to even better than last year's campaign. What's the difference? Those luxurious cascading locks.
The Haircut mowed down St. Louis last night on just 95 pitches. (Two hits, no walks, 8 Ks) After an incredible 2008, he's on pace for more innings, more strikeouts, fewer runs allowed, and his ERA and WHIP are slowly disappearing.
But back to the hair. You think he uses Prell on that baby, or does only Herbal Essences touch those tresses?
