Updated: Alex Rodriguez announced Saturday that he still plans to fight his reduced 162-game suspension in federal court.
A-Rod was hoping more around a max of 100 game total for his suspension, so he could have a chance to play this season as he will turn 39-years old around the All-Star Break. While A-Rod goes through the appeal process, the Yankees will have to plan on a season without him and with their current roster they could may do a time share at third base with Kelly Johnson and Eduardo Nunez and have Brendan Ryan play second base, which does not bode well as you could probably combine all three players and they would unlikely produce the numbers that Rodriguez would reach, even at his age. (There are some rumors swirling around that the Yankees may be interested in signing Michael Young to man the hot corner in the Bronx this coming season).ANALYST: Michael Pichan
The Raiders could be interested in free agent wide receiver Randall Cobb.
Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie drafted Cobb in his final year as the Packers' Director of Player Personnel. McKenzie apparently wants to reunite Cobb with his former mentor James Jones, who signed with the Raiders last offseason and was the team's most consistent receiver throughout the 2014 season. The question is, would the Raiders be able to convince Cobb to sign with them? They'll likely need to comfortably outbid the next highest bidder to earn rights to his services. If this scenario were to actually come to fruition, Derek Carr would get a nice boost in fantasy value. Analysis: Spencer Silva
