Free agent closer Brian Wilson will not shave his beard. Therefor he will not play for the New York Yankees. That's just the way it is, according to Yankees general manager Brian Cashman.
Any team that wants Wilson is going to have to take the beard as well. It's a package deal. Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports tweeted that there are several teams interested in Wilson. We'll see if it becomes part of his next contract.
From what I can gather, teams most interested in Brian Wilson are: SF, LAD, Cle, Det, Col, Sea, Bos. Cin cd climb in, depending on Chapman
