07:29 AM ET 01.10 | Alex Rodriguez may be having a change of heart. For [Rodriguez], the decision of whether to accept a suspension or fight on comes down to dollars and sense. As the day for arbitrator Fredric Horowitz to rule on Rodriguez's appeal of his 211-game ban draws near -- some think it could come as soon as Friday -- the beleaguered slugger has discussed the possibility of accepting a reduced ban without attempting to get an injunction delaying his punishment, according to a source in A-Rod's camp. According to the source, a suspension longer than 100 games will likely lead Rodriguez and his attorneys to pursue a temporary restraining order against Horowitz's ruling in federal court. If he is given a shorter suspension, however, "then Alex will have some things to think about," the source told ESPNNewYork.com.

I think you have an Atro Fathead above your bed to keep you "company" at night.

Isn't 'Atro fathead' an oxymoron?

I heard that the Atro bobbleheads are actually perfectly in proportion to his real head/body ratio.

Does it REALLY make sense to have an Estee Lauder ad on this page?

I mean, we all use Lancome, right?
