Cut Ups: Cardinals Get New 'Dos
HOUSTON (AP) -- Things have gotten hairy in the St. Louis Cardinals' clubhouse.

Most of the players got their heads shaved before Monday's game at Houston as a way to break the monotony of their longest road trip of the season. The players took turns doing the cutting and a large pile of multicolored locks covered the floor.

Several Cardinals took cell phone pictures of themselves after their cuts.

Manager Tony La Russa says he likes the new styles because they're so ugly, he won't have to worry about his players staying out late. La Russa says he told his players he won't join in unless they get a five-game lead in the NL Central race.

St. Louis entered Monday night's game five games behind Cincinnati.
