I thought it was lovably goofy. But when you hear him interviewed, you realize that he might actually be stoned, which is worrisome.

He does look tough and scary, until you see him throw a ball or swing the bat. He has the least scary of those motions in the league.

This look would be GREAT for a closer if you pair it with erratic mound behavior and an unpredictable 96 MPH fastball. You would get half the league out with sheer intimidation and confusion if you can successfully cultivate a "truly insane" persona like Johnny Damon has going.

I guess you were a Mitch Williams fan :-b

Look what happened to him when he had to face a real team in 93 ;-D

I don't care what he looks like. Boston has always been tolerant of free spirited players. They had Bill 'Spaceman' Lee right? The real question should focus on what is important: not how he looks, but how he performs. So the question should be how many more oh-fers before he cuts his hair, cuz so far that Sampson thing ain't got that swing.

I like his hair... I like it because he can't see the ball too well through it while hitting (he is now 0/9 with 1RBI and 1walk). I like it because it is a health hazard -- it causes him to run into teammates (see Kevin Millar).

i think he looks like a porn star, maybe that is good, maybe that is bad... as long as it is detremental to the red sox, I am all for it...

no no. the porn star look is already reserved by jeff kent and that mustache.

damon looks badass, and as one of my favorite players, i support him and hope he never cuts it.

Damon looks different, and I give him a lot of credit for that. I like wacky players and guys with personalilty (ex-King Scott Pollard, anyone?), and Damon now fits the bill.

Jason Giambi went from tres cool to boring as hell the day he moved to the Yankees. Give me some long crazy hair and 'burns any day.
