Andrew McCutchen cut his glorious long hair

We know this is tough to think about, but what if McCutchen's source of power was his hair? He hasn't been cutting it for years, and he's only been getting better the longer it grows.

What if dude just Sampsoned himself out of the rest of his peak and ruined the Pirates in the process?

The new look is working for him, though, we'll give him that.
