Blame Steinbrenner.

With Mariano Rivera long gone, the Yankees are in desperate need of a closer, but they need not ask Dodgers closer Brian Wilson for his services.

The Yankees have a long-standing infamous ‘no beards’ policy–only neatly groomed mustaches allowed, no facial hair below the lip.

A big blow for the Yankees, who with the unknown status of A-Rod and Cano for 2014 cannot afford to be picky.

Is it time they get rid of the policy?
