Hearing regarding the baseball future of Alex Rodriguez to he held on Monday

Attorneys representing New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez will argue against Major League Baseball in a closed-door meeting at the baseball commissioner's office.
New York (WSYR-TV/CNN) - On Monday, attorneys representing New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez will argue against Major League Baseball in a closed-door meeting at the baseball commissioner's office.

They will do their best to fight Rodriguez's 211-game suspension, baseball's longest doping punishment.

A lot is riding on the decision.

Rodriguez is still owed $80 million of his record $275 million contract.

Upholding the suspension would mean a significant financial loss for him. Overturning it could be seen as a major defeat for the league.

Arguments could last as long as five days.

Rodriguez will say that the league and the Yankees used unethical practices to target him because they felt he was overpaid and he did not perform well on the field.

The league will lay out a case that Rodriguez took performance-enhancing drugs, including "testosterone and human growth hormone", provided by Anthony Bosch, who ran the now defunct Biogenesis anti-aging clinic in Miami.
