The hearing was originally slated to last through Friday, but the lack of testimony from Bud Selig and A-Rod allowed things to progress a little quicker than expected.
Independent arbitrator Fredric Horowitz was originally thought to have a 25-day window to make a final decision about whether to uphold A-Rod's standing 211-game suspension, reduce it, or get rid of it entirely. But a decision from Horowitz might not come until early January, according to Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York and Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports.
Horowitz is supposed to make his decision based on only the evidence presented in the courtroom over the last two months, but you'd be forgiven if you thought otherwise given the spectacle that occurred around the hearing. Rodriguez and MLB have exchanged accusations throughout the proceedings, with matters ultimately coming to a head on Wednesday when A-Rod stormed out of the courthouse then bashed Selig and company in a subsequent radio interview.
Rodriguez's lawyers have said that they plan on making much of the evidence presented at the hearing available to the public in the coming days, so expect more dirt to come to light very soon. They have also threatened to take the league to federal court, but it's unclear how quickly that would happen.
