The New York Yankees picked up Brandon McCarthy from the Arizona Diamondbacks Sunday to help out their injured pitching staff and no one could have been happier than the pitcher’s wife Amanda.
Surely, Mrs. McCarthy is going to miss the friends she made while in Phoenix, but she’s more excited about what her husband will be leaving behind.
And you can give the assist to the Yankees longstanding facial hair policy.
Haha @BMcCarthy32 you have to shave that nasty thing growing on your face! I WIN

The Yankees acquired the soon-to-be-shorn righty in exchange for Vidal Nuno and some cash. McCarthy will join the team in time for the their game against Cleveland on Monday.
