Wilson has basically said, as a Bostonian, he'd never consider the Yankees anyway.

have no problem with facial hair but absolutely hate that flat-bill cap look.

The Yankees can't handle awesome.

They pay the most egregious PDE user, but have a problem with beards? I hope the A's pick him up.

HEY, HE CAN'T SHAVE HIS BEARD, this is how he throws his spitters!

Check out what he does in the bullpen in the 8th inning BEFORE he goes in the game.... he ALWAYS eats greasy Top Ramen noodles that get in his beard that he then strokes to get great spitter movement on key pitches in the 9th.  Check the video.

Why do you think Sergio Romo loves his beard as well?  DUH.

I usually can't stand the Yankees but in this case I support them 100%!  Wilson is clearly out of control and I wouldn't bring that "act" to my team either.  Love the Yankees position on facial hair and long messy hair styles.  Too bad we can't get the other MLB teams and the rest of professional sports to have the same respect.

It's ok, we have enough over inflated egos in NY so you can take a seat brian wilson. we'll keep the millions we were willing to spend on you and give it to someone that actually has some respect

Brian Wilson is by far one the dumbest people on earth. If a team that is well respected as the Yankees want you to play for them you take that offer. Not to mention this year you weren't signed until September because no team wanted you. They obviously see something in you and believe that you could fill the role that Rivera left open.

What makes this one-trick pony one-hit wonder drama queen even think that the Yankees would want anything to do with him? His contrived, non-conformist act only worked when he had some semblance of relevance. I doubt if even Keith Oberfraud would book him; he's a spent bullet (both of them are, actually).

In that photo it just looks like he's hiding his fat neck. Don't hate, Yankees, don't hate.

@JohnVincente he doesn't want to go to the Yankees because they are garbage. He wants to play on a winning team, he's got plenty of money.

@Willis22 The Yankees are garbage and their front office needs to get over their grooming thing, Wilson is one of the best closers and will get picked up for plenty of money. The Red Sox don't have a problem paying with beards
