BREAKING NEWS: Alex Rodriguez Suspended

In the latest installment of the A-Rod saga, the MLB has decided to reduce his suspension from 211 es to 162 games (The full 2014 season plus playoffs.) A-Rod has vowed to continue his fight, saying "No player should have to go through what I have been dealing with, and I am exhausting all options to ensure not only that I get justice, but that players’ contracts and rights are protected through the next round of bargaining, and that the MLB investigation and arbitration process cannot be used against others in the future the way it is currently being used to unjustly punish me." The rest of his statement can be found here. This decision comes as a relief to Yankees fans as the Yankees now have $27 million dollars of freed up cap space for the 2014 season. Could this mean an aggressive run at Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka? Only time will tell.
