I think he's reached the "**** it.  I don't care what they think.  I'm gonna **** with them" stage.
Yep. Can you blame him? There isn't much he could do to change anyone's opinion of him anyway.

Not at all.   Whenever his last game is, he should shoot himself in the *** with a big bottle marked "STEROIDS" while standing in the on deck circle.

A-Rod calls in sick before his meeting with MLB.

A-Rod storms out of appeal meeting.   Says he will no longer participate with this farce.

Yeah, that's going to help his case.

After walking out, Rodriguez issued a statement through his spokesman.

"I am disgusted with this abusive process, designed to ensure that the player fails," the statement said. "I have sat through 10 days of testimony by felons and liars, sitting quietly through every minute, trying to respect the league and the process. This morning, after Bud Selig refused to come in and testify about his rationale for the unprecedented and totally baseless punishment he hit me with, the arbitrator selected by MLB and the players' association refused to order Selig to come in and face me.

"The absurdity and injustice just became too much. I walked out and will not participate any further in this farce."

I think his case is weak and he knows it.   However, 211 games seems so arbitrary that he expects it to get reduced whether he participates or not.   Don't expect to see A-Rod playing next season.

He's angry because it was ruled that Selig doesn't have to show up.  I actually agree with ARod here...maybe I wouldn't have been a ***** and stormed out, but I'd be pretty upset if the guy who suspended me didn't have to explain his case.

Selig isn't on trial.   Or appealing a decision.   MLB has people there, people who are more "eloquent", people who won't stumble around and say something stupid.   THAT'S what A-Rod's people want.

I don't think 211 was arbitrary.  At the time the suspension was issued, weren't there about 50 games left in the 2013 season?  I think the number 211 amounted to the number of games left in 2013 at that time, plus 162 more games for all of 2014.  It was a suspension basically through the end of the 2014 regular season.  Since he appealed and ended up playing the rest of 2013, 211 games doesn't really accomplish the same thing, so I wouldn't be surprised to see it reduced.  But I'd still expect it to last at least one full season.
