Colby Rasmus cornrows his hair because why not?

Big League Stew

Some players, when they take a road trip to Baltimore, find a "socks shop" and get a pair of zebra gamers to wear. Others, such as Colby Rasmus of the Toronto Blue Jays, find a salon and get their hair braided into cornrows.

Colby is drapin', as the kids say.

We're not sure yet what possessed Rasmus to do a 'do like this, but over the course of a long 162-game season, players like to change things up — especially when they're not playing particularly well. Unfortunately for the Blue Jays, Rasmus struck out three times in an 8-2 loss to the Orioles on Saturday night, giving him nine whiffs in 10 at-bats.

Hopefully he ditches the slump but keeps the hair, which has experienced an interesting evolution through the years:

The photo on the left was taken within the past week. The one on the right came from Rasmus' appearance in the Little League World Series in 1999. Was he a little blond kid?

The reaction from around the Internet seems to be 80-20 in favor of the Rasmus hair transformation. One of Colby's buds, Matt Sebek of Joe Sports Fan, seemed to think this change was inevitable. And this other dude with cornrows — King Sexton — loves the look.

If it's good enough for those guys ...
