Josh Gordon could face a season-long suspension after a second failed drug test months ago, this time for marijuana, sources told "Outside the Lines" on Friday.
WTH is wrong with this kid? The Browns trading down in the draft instead of nabbing the top rated wide out in Sammy Watkins looks to be an even more perplexing move if they new of this pending suspension for two months. Those of you considering drafting Johnny Manziel in your dynasty rookie league drafts may want to consider targeting Vikings draftee Teddy Bridgewater instead if Gordon in deeds end up being banned for the season as you can not count on Gordon learning his lesson and not screwing up again which could result in an even longer ban in the future.

Curtis Granderson went 2-for-4 with a double and a run on Friday night against his former Yankees club
Granderson was happy to be back in his old stomping grounds on Friday night, as he went 2-for-4 with a double, a run scored, and made a few impressive defensive plays out in right field. He has started out rather cold at the dish on the season (.222) so his two hits were encouraging, but what has been impressive so far this year is his great plate discipline. He is not the power hitter that he once was, but he might be making some strides in transforming his game into a more patient hitter. Analysis: Dom Murtha
Mark Teixeria went 2-for-4 with two home runs and 4 RBI on Friday night vs the Mets
Tex was locked in on Friday night, as he refused to allow deGrom to get a fastball by him. Both of his home runs were balls that he turned on and launched into the second deck of the house that Jeter built. Of his 12 hits on the year, seven of them are home runs. He may not be hitting for average, but Tex is certainly making the most of his contact by slugging at a high clip. Going forward understand that his average won’t be there, but his power surge is an encouraging sign. Analysis: Dom Murtha
