Daily News:

Alex Rodriguez will seek an injunction staying his suspension faster than it takes to turn a double play if arbitrator Fredric Horowitz upholds his 211-game doping ban or doesn’t slash it to A-Rod’s liking, sources familiar with the embattled slugger’s appeal have told the Daily News.

The sources say they believe Rodriguez’s attorneys will ask a judge to issue an injunction that would allow the embattled superstar to report to the Yankees’ spring training camp next month and play when the 2014 season begins while Team A-Rod attempts to have the suspension linked to the Biogenesis drug scandal overturned in court.

sources say the Yankee third baseman would likely accept a suspension of 65 games or less without a fight.

There is no doubt that a 65 game (or less) suspension would not please the Emperor and Darth Vader, as that means the Yankees would be on the hook for ~ 100 games of Arod’s salary and blow up any plans of remaining under $189 million.

Although if the Yankees sign Tanaka, they won’t be able to stay under $189 million anyway — Arod or not.
