UPDATES & NEWS
Josh Gordon has not had settlement talks with the NFL to reduce his year-long suspension. Gordon has appealed the suspension, and the result of that appeal can come at any time.
It has been three days since the hearing regarding Gordon's appeal. In the light of the recent Ray Rice "punishment" it will be a bit hypocritical to keep Gordon out for a year. ANALYST:
Carl Crawford exited Monday night's game with tightness in his right side.
It was only a matter of time before the glass-made Crawford cracked in some capacity. It's unknown whether or not he'll need a DL stint to rid him of the tightness, but if he does Scott Van Slyke and Alex Guerrero are likely to fill in for him. Guerrero has been among the hottest hitters in baseball, in a limited role, and would become mixed league relevant if/when he finds himself in the lineup. Don Mattingly, however, doesn't appear to be Guerrero's biggest fan. Let's hope he's not pigeon-holed to pinch-hitting duties. Analysis: Spencer Silva
