Manny Ramirez joins White Sox today in Cleveland

Updated, 3:42 p.m.

Manny Ramirez is in Cleveland for the Chicago White Sox game tonight. He is not in the starting lineup, although that could change. He has not cut his hair. These three things are not necessarily related. (via Jon Morosi and Joe Lemire)

Joe Lemire of Sports Illustrated tweets: Manny Ramirez not in #WhiteSox lineup right now. Apparently $3.83 million for 31 games doesn't supersede the fatigue from a red-eye flight.

Manny Ramirez is expected to be wearing No. 99 with the Chicago White Sox, but the larger question is: will the hair be there?

"We have a certain way we like to have our players represent us, and that was discussed quite some time ago with one of my coaches," White Sox General Manager Ken Williams said Monday when asked about Ramirez's dreadlocks. "We'll just wait and let you see how they decide to handle it. From my understanding, it's not going to be an issue, and he's going to make an adjustment and conform to how we like to have our players represented out there."

So the White Sox care about a dude's hair, but not his attitude? Interesting. I wouldn't let this self-absorbed moron anywhere near my clubhouse, but what do I know?
