Patriots | Brandon Spikes punching ticket out of town?

The New England Patriots could part ways with MLB Brandon Spikes after the 2013 season. The impending free agent has expressed displeasure with the Pats' expectations on how he must prepare for the regular season. He wasn't present for the start of OTAs and hasn't participated in their offseason conditioning workouts. The Patriots might prioritize team chemistry and avoid dealing with ongoing and potential headaches Spikes may cause.

Fantasy Tip: New England has been effective at plugging holes in their D with numerous chess pieces, despite their flaws with giving up points and passing yardage in recent seasons. They'll remain a starter-worthy unit this year, with Spikes as likely their most consistent contributor in tackles.
