 SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -There was a big buzz going on in the Mets' clubhouse Tuesday.
As in Carlos Beltran cutting hair for some good ol' fashioned team bonding.
``I don't think it was any one guy's idea,'' third baseman David Wright said, showing off his new extra-short 'do. ``Just as a team, we thought about it, got clippers and started doing it. We're trying to get everyone to do it.''
And almost everybody did, save for shortstop Jose Reyes, relievers Aaron Heilman and Aaron Sele, and pitching coach Rick Peterson. Manager Willie Randolph closely monitored the entire operation, his hair already trimmed close to the head.
``Let me see, shave it! Let's go, come on!'' one player yelled at a teammate in the bathroom area, where a long line formed as players watched one another and waited their turns for Beltran to do his thing. Julio Franco had the job of shaving Beltran's head.
Reyes received a little razzing for his decision to keep his twisty curls intact, too.
``I'm like you, baby, that's a hard decision,'' Rickey Henderson, a Mets special instructor, hollered to Reyes, then later added: ``Some guys don't have the head for it. They have lumps.''
You didn't see Henderson getting his head shaved, either.
Tom Glavine got a special reprieve simply because he was pitching, though the left-hander said he was in no way against doing something silly in order to bring players closer.
``It's not part of my pregame ritual,'' he said.
Even team spokesman Jay Horwitz took part.
A freshly shorn Shawn Green, the Mets' right fielder, walked out for batting practice sporting a stunned look - his dark curly locks completely gone.
