LOS ANGELES -- Tim Lincecum hasn't reverted to keeping his hair close-cropped as he did during his first two Giants seasons. But for the immediate future, he won't remind anybody of wild-maned Pittsburgh Steelers safety Troy Polamalu, either. Lincecum received approximately a two-inch trim before the Giants left for Los Angeles on Thursday. The right-hander's hair remains long enough for him to wear it in a ponytail, as he sometimes does in the privacy of the clubhouse.
"But it slips out now," he said Friday.
