Win or lose, Jacob deGrom is going to the barbershop.

Though his beautiful flowing locks may be full of good luck, have done well for him the past two seasons, and sort of make him look like a poodle, they will be gone after the season ends. The Mets’ young ace told reporters Tuesday that his hair is “driving him nuts.”

I wonder if it’s legal to cut a hole in the top of his cap and rock a ponytail. But I digress. The Mets are in the World Series and deGrom is slated to pitch Game 2 on the road, and if necessary, Game 6, too. Until then, hair. Paging GQ and Esquire. Paging Jon Snow. 

Until then, we can only speculate.
