It's silly to believe Selig said "211 games!!!!!" on his own. Essentially, A-Rod just wants Selig to be there to say something stupid. If/when he sues MLB, Selig will be "coached up" by his team of lawyers. I'm assuming they knew Selig wouldn't be forced to testify so there was no point. Additionally, if A-Rod loses and sues, Selig won't be contradicting himself the 2nd time around.
