It's looks like the format is hard coded in vc-git-annotate-command.
If you can find a set of arguments to git blame (for example, -s to
hide author and date or --abbrev=n to truncate the SHA1) that produces
the format you'd like, you could redefine this function with the
arguments you prefer. It's a hack, but it does help to make lines in
the annotate buffer a bit shorter. Unfortunately, the date is parsed
to fontify the annotate buffer, so you can't use -s if you want to
keep the color coding.

There is probably a better solution using invisibility specs, but it
looks like that might imply some deep changes to the entire vc system.
