For Alex Rodriguez, the decision of whether to accept a suspension or fight on comes down to dollars and sense. As the day for arbitrator Fredric Horowitz to rule on Rodriguez's appeal of his 211-game ban draws near -- some think it could come as soon as Friday -- the beleaguered slugger has discussed the possibility of accepting a reduced ban without attempting to get an injunction delaying his punishment, according to a source in A-Rod's camp.

The amount of money it would cost A-Rod to take his case to court would costs millions of dollars and there is no guarantee you would even win, something that apparently beginning to sink in for him. It is anticipated that the reduced suspension would be around 100 games, which means he would be able to return sometime next season, which is key for the 38-year old veteran.
