Sacrifice in the name of team unity. Shawn Green and David Newhan, two Southern California guys, had the most to lose in this major New York Mets Players hair purge. Well, at least for one night in San Francisco it worked. A crisp, clean New York victory, 4-1 over the San Francisco Giants

You probably were picked last or never made a team, that's why you don't understand why they did it.

Ah, JOAN PAYSON. If you only knew how many baseball players were really using steriods you'd faint. And I don't mean just sluggers, either. We're talking pitchers as well. So dig deeper before you brand Bond's. As for him being a liar, you don't know this to be a fact and you are only guided by your blind and myopic hate for the famed slugger. Bonds, well, I don't hate him and I'm not in love with him but I do know baseball and I know "from the facts" that he is the greatest baseball player around today. And if he is a liar. Prove it.

someone please shoot bonds
What an awful thing to say. What has Barry Bonds done to you? If you want to shoot him for being the greatest baseball player around today even that's awful. Would you shoot Big Mac or any number of players who's tainted by the steriod scandal. And would you shoot the many famous pitchers around who are also tainted. You sound racist to me.

nOTHING WRONG WITH THE METS BUZZING THEIR HEADS. AFTER ALL IT'S MULTIMILLIONAIRES PLAYING A KID'S GAME. EVERYBODY'S TRYING TO BE HOWIE MANDEL. IT'S THE IN THING BEING A CUEBALL. I KNOW, I AM ONE. ANYWAY, GREAT PITCHING BY TOMMY GLAVINE AS HE WINS HIS 294TH GAME. IT TOOK FOUR TRIES BUT HE GOT IT. EVEN THOUGH BAROID HIT A HOMER, THANK GOD IT WAS A SOLO HOMER. HOPEFULLY THE METTIES WILL CAPTURE THE RUBBER GAME OF THIS SERIES THIS AFTERNOON BEFORE HEADING HOME TO FLUSHING TO START A VERY TOUGH HOMESTAND AGAINST THE BREWERS (1ST PLACE BREWERS BY THE WAY), SWEET LOU'S CUBBIES & THE YANKEES. GREAT MATCHUP TODAY WITH OUR MAINE MAN JOHNNY TRYING TO GO 6-0 AGAINST OUR LOCAL BOY MONTGOMERY MATT MORRIS WHO'S 4-2 WITH A 3.20 ERA. GO METS!

Sounds like you work for the Bonds pr machine. He cheated to get to your so called best player around today(which by the way he is not). I wouldn't shoot the players, just ban them and their records from baseball.

And isn't THAT what sports are supposed to be all about!!!!!!

You moronic posters are really stupid!

No tension in the Met clubhouse, the tension in the Yanqui clubhouse has to be unbearable!!!!!!

Yanquis, oh my lord we better win or Georgie is gonna fire someone or give another old ballblayer a pampered contract. Maybe he's gonna fire the guy who caters our after game food!!!!!!

Baseball is lame anyway. I can't wait for football season to start. I can't stand watching the baseball "fights" when they occur. I remember hearing on the news a few years ago about a "bench clearing brawl" between the Red Sox and Yankees. The only injury was from a Yankee player when he was trying to climb out of the dugout and he pulled a muscle. They all then run to the pitchers mound and try and slap at eachother. A fight between Tiny Tim and Richard Simmons would be more dangerous and entertaining.

I'll bet there are more then just a few Mets that look like Telly Savalas and not Yul Brenner. Lopping off one's hair, completely changes how you look and appear to other people. There will be a few totally unrecognizable. A few may need to ware a different size cap, removintg your head hair will cut the head down in size. Shawn Green better get a size or two smaller, he wouldn't want the cap coming off running after fly balls. It must have been fun in the Locker and Bath rooms, before and after. I wonder if the cut hair was gathered up and given to charity or did each player save his own, for sale as Memorabilia? Hey Girls, what would you pay for a lock of David Wright's hair?

I do have another question, who did Beltron's head?

Mets stink!
Do we have a losing Yankee fan showing off his intelligence? I shouldn't have said that, the Yanks have fallen on hard times, not a healthy pitcher on the staff. Are we supposed to feel sorry about that? What's with A-Rod not a Headline in two weeks, is his season over?
My real reason for replying, I want to ask Tom, what about the Mets that stink? They are a few games above .500, Team is batting and pitching well enough to win a few games, the Fans are showing up giving support to the Team and they are having a little fun, cutting their hair off. Just what are you jealous of?
