Apparently the same guy who tweeted the potential suspension of Melky Cabrera, four weeks before it actually happened last year, is laying another bombshell out there. He's using an anonymous source to make this claim so take this with a grain of salt but it's a big news story if true.
Ignoring the validity of credibility for this report, this would be huge news to the Rays (as well as my fantasy team). This would definitely put a dark cloud over the Yankees, as well as MLB, but the Rays would benefit immensely from a potentially severely weakened Yanks squad. With the AL East being wide open this year any negative outcomes for the rest of the division are welcome.
As a Rays fan who lives in NYC, it would add a plethora of quality jokes to my repertoire. Even if this report ends up being false please take caution drafting any of these fellows in fantasy because "I told you so!" would certainly follow. Once again odds are this will probably go away within a month with no validation and we will have to deal with Cano and Granderson (at some point) this season but as a Rays fan in NYC, one can hope.
Felt like adding an about me because I don't mind wasting more of your time.
"My name is Danny and the only credibility I have covers UCF sports. I have gone to several opening days since '98 and have averaged about 15 games a year. Unfortunately my average will dip this year due to moving to NYC to take my career seriously. I've mostly been a lurker on this site but have had some highlights especially during the Casey vs DanJo brawl a couple years back. I may have told Slowinski to perform some sort of act on some ginger *****. I'm glad the Magic of Kotch happened (he's a family friend) but have moved on and excited for the Magic of Loney."
