Let’s get this out of the way first:
Jason Beck has the scoop.
“Change,” Ordonez said. “Overhauling. Maybe I hit like old Magglio.”
The first 90-degree day of the summer in Detroit might’ve also had an impact.
“Hot,” he said. “Too heavy.”
FSND’s Twitter has a picture of the new/old look. Sigh. It’s not bad, it’s just… it’s not as fun. And I LIKE fun, catdammit.
I have hastily compiled a timeline of my own photos of Magglio’s hair. You will note the changes in camera quality and photographic ability as we trundle through the years. These images range from 2005 up into the 2009 season.
Now you may truly understand what it is that we have lost.
