Jacoby must like the Huarache Pro Mids as he brought them with him from Boston. Based on all the cleats we’ve seen from the Yankees, they enforce a strict black & white only rule, so that’s why you never see the Jeter’s and A-Rod’s of the world wearing any color. They’re not permitted to. I won’t get too political about it but I think that’s a bullshit rule. As is the facial hair rule. Has every World Series champion been clean-shaven? Its comical to even ask that question with the “Playoff Beard” taking on the cult mentality that it has recently. This isn’t 1927 anymore. With all the money the Yankees have, their uptight attitude keeps free agents away, and that’s not debatable… Brian Wilson’s agent told Brian Cashman that Wilson won’t shave his beard. “Cross him off the list,” Cashman said. — Mark Feinsand (@FeinsandNYDN) November 13, 2013 That’s not to say that the Yankees needed Wilson or that he doesn’t have the ugliest haircut/beard going on Earth right now, but I’m sure he’s not the first good ballplayer to feel that way.
