While Alex Rodriguez has dominated the Biogenesis headlines, for reasons both valid and ludicrous, he was not the sole Yankee representative on that suspension list. Francisco Cervelli was also connected and tagged with a 50-game suspension, one that he, like every other non-A-Rod player, did not contest and will begin serving immediately. Cervelli has flown largely undetected and unmentioned under the cloud of A-Rod, for obvious reasons. He's injured, he just got the standard first time suspension, and he's Francisco Cervelli. In the grand scheme of things his 50-game ban means very little. For Frankie, it marks the nail in the coffin on another strange and frustrating season in pinstripes and possibly the final season in his Yankee career.
