He's begging for the maximum suspension possible, one that will end his career.

Is that because you think there's no way he won't get the remainder due on the existing contract?  Cause I believe the Yankees are going to have to pay him.

They're not going to pay him while he's suspended, and he will lose with an arbitrator.   He's finished in baseball.

But, throughout the appeal process, eventually the Yankkees will have to honor the Contract.  Deduct the current suspension if you want, but isn't he still owed about $110 Miliion?

Ah, but that's the rub. All player contracts are only valid under the constructs of a collective bargaining agreement, which Rodriguez violated, thus potentially voiding the contract. By dragging this into a court of law, Rodriguez is taking a huge risk.
