NEW YORK - Alex Rodriguez gets to start arguing his case today.

In a hearing room before arbitrator Fredric Horowitz, lawyers for the Yankees third baseman will argue why the 211-game suspension imposed by Major League Baseball should be overturned.

The Major League Baseball Players Association says the penalty imposed by baseball Commissioner Bud Selig is excessive. Unless there is a settlement, a decision isn't expected until the winter.

After the hearing days conclude, the sides will be given several weeks to submit final briefs. Horowitz will then take time to make his decision.

While technically chairman of a three-person panel, Horowitz is the independent member joined by one representative of each side.
