Andrew McCutchen announces haircut

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Andrew McCutchen has a secret he plans to share later today:

Here's the secret: He got a haircut. Look at his "hair," which isn't his hair but what appears to be cheap wig, in that video. Ask yourself why it's shot in black and white, which obscures whatever is going on with his head. Consider that all that hair might literally "weigh on" him. If you're going to worry about anything, worry that McCutchen's MVP magic actually comes from the dreads. Remember how Pirates fans called Craig Wilson "Samson"?

As Pat points out, this is not about an extension. The Pirates would not allow McCutchen to announce an extension that way. Also, the "weighing on me" comment makes no sense if that's what the announcement is about. It's his hair. That's all.

UPDATE: Yep, it's a haircut.
