Will 'Band Of Bearded Brothers' Shave For '14?

Clearly, the whole beard thing was a unifying force for the 2013 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox. Whenever we think of the unexpected ring of '13, it will come with images of our hirsute heroes. However, 2014 is a new year. And it needs a new theme. Jonny Gomes and David Ross agree—they have already committed to putting blade to face. Said Gomes, "The beard's coming off. Oh, yeah. The baseball season is not like a cookie cutter. You can't win last year. I mean, it's a clean slate, you know." When news of this development reached Mike Napoli, however, he was outraged. Via TWITTER, the undoubted winner of The Best Beard Competition said, "Whoaaa Saaaaay what?! Can't cut this thing!!!!" So, what will transpire once they all congregate at jetBlue Park in a few short weeks? The plot—and maybe the fuzz—thickens.
