Red Sox fans probably need no reminding, but the Yankees are a terrible, terrible organization. Not in a "we don't know what we're doing and are probably going to make a terrible mess of things" sort of way, but in a "embodiment of everything that is wrong and terrible in baseball" sort of way.

Well, that team just signed Andrew Miller for four years and $36 million.  And they've gone ahead and decided to double down on that whole embodiment of everything that is wrong and terr--y'know what, let's just go ahead and shorten that to "evil"--thing.

As they have done with so many players before, including former Red Sox like Johnny Damon and Kevin Youkilis (and Jacoby Ellsbury if we're going to count that as a beard, I guess), the Yankees have forced their image on their newest player. Yes, Andrew Miller is now clean-shaven, and it is absolutely terrible:

You suck, Yankees. You really, really suck.
