As some of you may or may not know, the Red Sox players have been growing beards. It’s become such a thing that each beard has a name and even Sports Illustrated did a story on it.
It’s fine and all and this isn’t the first time the Red Sox have grown hair as a team. Their “idiots” identity from the 2004 team was well-documented too.
However, all this attention on the Red Sox has left a couple Oakland Athletics players wondering about another East Coast bias situation.
Outfielder Josh Reddick and reliever Sean Doolittle both have been growing beards before this Red Sox phenomenon took place, yet they are left wondering how come there isn’t a story on them. In fact, Reddick is in a national “beard off” with wrestler Daniel Bryan.
