Yankees Will Not Sign Brian Wilson Because He Won’t Shave Beard
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.
Brian Wilson's agent told Brian Cashman that Wilson won't shave his beard. "Cross him off the list," Cashman said.

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?
