The longest saga since R Kelly’s  ‘Trapped in the Closet’ will resume September 30–unless the Yankees make the playoffs.

The disgraced Yankees third baseman’s appeal of the 211 game suspension he was hit with back in July will take place in front of arbitrator Frederic Horowitz.

Currently the Yankees are just 2.5 games behind from the second wild card, so if need be the hearing will be postponed.

Sources have told ESPN  that hearings will take place in New York, with the final verdict as for his suspension decided well after the World Series.

Look for Horowitz’s decision to directly impact the Yankees’ off season moves, with Arod due to make $25 million next season with $6 million in bonuses if he ties Willie Mays at number 4 on the all time home runs list.

Still we do not know for certain what actual evidence MLB has on Arod, so there’s a lot of questions to answer. Overall, this remains something the Yankees will be more concerned about post season.

As for now the Yankees goal is making the postseason and worrying about the Arod drama when the offseason comes.
