David Price Says No To Yankees Trade

David Price says he wouldnt sign with the Yankees because of their facial hair policy

This will probably set talk radio and the tabloids afire for a day or so, even if its pretty meaningless. Heres David Price, talking to Jon Paul Morosi about the possibility of him being traded by the Rays this year because of approaching free agency:

If I ever did hit that free-agent market, there would be teams I wouldnt sign with simply because of the stuff that Ive heard every rule they have Taking note of his beard, I told Price hed have to shave if the Yankees traded for him.

I wouldnt stay there very long then, he responded. I wouldnt sign a long-term deal there. Those rules, thats old-school baseball. I was born in 85. Thats not for me. Thats not something I want to be a part of.
