My House Is On Fire; Let's Paint The Walls!

Ummm... yeah.
Nationals manager Manny Acta, concerned that injured infielder Dmitri Young's big, curly Afro was becoming too much of a distraction, told the injured first baseman after Thursday night's loss to the Mets to have his hair cut before he showed up for Friday night's game here.

Young, who is protective of his locks, complied. He sported a more trimmed look when he surfaced at the clubhouse.

Other than to passing birds, perhaps, what's the distraction?

Was Austin Kearns staring at it while batting? Does it block Ryan Zimmerman's view of the slider a foot outside? Was his hair asking for its own locker or contract? Is this just some scheme to get him to drop a quick 10 pounds before tomorrow's weigh-in?
