I thought there was no way Jason Giambi or Johnny Damon would have signed with the Yankees, as they really embraced their "looks", yet they used some of that massive Yankees money to get razors and scissors.

Money talks. It also makes you reconsider your unfortunate grooming decisions.

I like this principled stand. The Yankees draconian facial hair policy is one of the many things I detest about that organization.

While it would be wrong for the league to mandate facial hair rules (other than all players must have mustaches), I see nothing wrong with a team doing it.

As for Price, if that's his principles, good for him for sticking to them. However, I'll believe it when I see it. He can be bought. Everybody's got a price.

I think the difference now between Price and Damon/Giambi is there are more big spending teams so the Yankee money thing is not a factor. There's a half dozen teams in the AL alone that will spend like NYY now.

True, but it isn't like it is a choice between great riches and a life of modest means or worse. Price would be looking at a ridiculously high salary vs. even a more ridulously high salary with the Yankees. There are players over the free-agent years who have chosen not to sign with the Yankees although the Yankees have offered more money.

There are players who take offers from the Yankees (at least through their agents) even though they have no intention of signing with the Yankees. It strengthens their bargaining position with teams they would rather sign with. If Price were a current free agent, such a statement might even be seen as a challenge to the Yankees to offer more money. As it was, it was just a curious, unguarded comment about a division rival.

Contrast that policy with Charlie Finley who, despite his reputation as an *******, actually encouraged his players tp grow mustaches one year, offering a bonus to aanybody who grew on by Father's Day

I wonder if the Yankees try to regulate hideous tattoos and piercings.

I'd shave my ass and pitch with my butt cheeks for the right price.
