USA Today’s Bob Nightengale joined the show to talk about Alex Rodriguez and BioGenesis.

Nightengale said that A-Rod’s buddies are probably telling him he’s nuts to come back, but he thinks Rodriguez wants to be a hero. He said imagine if A-Rod helped the Yankees win a World Series.

Nightengale said that he thinks it will be a while until the BioGenesis fallout is settled. He said the guys who get big suspensions will fight as long as they can and that will certainly go into the offseason.

Dan asked Nightengale who would be buyers at the trade deadline. He said the Tigers will be dangerous if they get help in the bullpen.
