The Red Sox had their photo day this weekend, and it was mostly an uninspiring, standard affair. One of the more significant takeaways of photo day? Robbie Ross needs a haircut and a shave -- let's just say he doesn't look as glorious as Andrew Miller used to when he spent the offseason letting everything grow out. Sorry, Robbie, but it's true. Part of being a responsible beard owner is knowing when things have gotten out of hand. Do the Daniel Bryan thing and donate it to a worthy cause.
Don't worry, though, as there was still something worthwhile buried in the photo day selection even if Ross keeps his hair: David Ortiz apparently owns a large gold and diamond chain that says "500" on it, in honor of his hitting career home run number 500 in 2015:
We need a closer look at this thing, but thankfully, the photographers knew we would:
There's a little Big Papi on it, even! Now, I don't expect even Ortiz to be wearing this thing during games or anything, but it is pretty great that he either had this made or given to him and that he decided to share it with the rest of us on photo day. Do you think this costs more or less than the standard $250,000 diamond necklace he wears during games?
Man, Ortiz is going to be missed when he retires.
