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."

Buster Olney seinor writer for ESPN the Magazine was able to join One on One shortly after the breaking news of Alex Rodriguez’s 162 game suspension.  He talked about whether the full season ban was surprising to him, what kind of precedent this set for Major League Baseball moving forward, and if the disgruntled third baseman will ever play again in the Majors.

It’s a story that you’ve probably seen countless times; two leading characters despise each other. One who relates to the audience with his positive morals, and the other who is the polar opposite, are forced to team up in order to halt the evil-doings of a larger-than-life villain. Along the way, however, the better man has to resort to the tactics of the skeevier one in order to get the job done.
