    Somebody get Dustin Ackley a razor, he's been traded to the New York Yankees.

    Ackley, the very-much-bearded Seattle Mariners outfielder, will be headed to the Bronx in a three-player deal that Ackley confirmed himself to reporters Thursday outside the Mariners clubhouse.

    Seattle is getting 23-year-old outfielder Ramon Flores and 25-year-old pitcher Jose Ramirez from the Yanks. Jack Curry of the YES Network was first to report the trade.
