BOSTON -- There is positive news regarding communication between Yankees GM Brian Cashman and Alex Rodriguez, for a change.

While the team says goodbye to longtime Shortstop Derek Jeter, it prepares to welcome back A-Rod, who's suspension will come to an end after the Yankees' final game Sunday, with open arms.

“I’ve already been talking to A-Rod personally," said Cashman. "I reached out to Alex about ten days ago. I talked to him trying to get his thought process on what’s the best way to come back."

Well, it's the worst time of the season for every fantasy football owner out there: the start of the bye weeks. You know what's even worse? There's SIX teams out this week, and it's only week 4. SIX! It's like the fantasy football gods said to themselves "Hey, let's have some fun and put an absurd amount of teams on the bye just to mess with some managers." Not to mention, basically everybody is going down with some injury or another. As you can tell, I've had some (scratch that, A LOT) of frustation these past couple weeks.

Let’s be honest. Calvin Johnson is the best wide receiver in the game. He’s got the height (6’5), the speed (runs 4.35 40-yard dash), and of course his insane numbers in the NFL (68 TDs, 9,657 yards in 7+ seasons) that prove he is the best. Week in and week out we see him make spectacular catches in double, triple coverage that would be unimaginable for anyone else. Even Rex Ryan, the coach who adores the “island” corner or man-to-man press coverage on the outside knows that isn’t possible against this Lion.

The New York Giants struggles continued on Sunday with a 25-14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals.  Former Michigan State quarterback Drew Stanton, who hadn’t started an NFL game since 2010, led Arizona down the field on the opening drive to a touchdown and the Cardinals never looked back.  The Giants were in a 10-0 hole before they could blink but Eli and the offense started clicking in the 2nd quarter.
