We Can All Rally Around the Rally Head


rallyheadTrailing the Rockies by 4 games in the wild card race, the chances of the Atlanta Braves making the playoffs aren’t great. That isn’t stopping Braves reliever Peter Moylan though. The burly Aussie righthander who has had 75 appearances this year without allowing a home run has shaved his head, well, part of it, in what he’s terming the “Rally Head.”

He’s not worried that he looks like a bad James Lipton or John Smoltz impersonator, “”I would do anything appearance-wise to get into the playoffs,” he told MLB.com.

While his hair efforts aren’t likely to make much difference, he intends to keep the new ‘do, at least until September 20, when former teammate John Smoltz and the Cardinals come to town.

    Hey, if you’re losing your hair already anyway, why not turn it into a positive or a “game” thing?
