Saves Are Distorting Arbitration Salaries

Closers are receiving inflated salaries in arbitration but some teams can and should take advantage of the situation by keeping young pitchers out of the ninth inning

Rays backing off on arbitration stance?

H/T to MLBTR I thought the Rays front office had a self-imposed deadline back in Jan. to cut off all negotiations and take a player to arbitration if a deal wasn't reached. Now it seems as if they're still negotiating with Willy Aybar and Dioner Navarro? Maybe it's because they're discussing multi-year deals, but I still don't understand why they'd say one thing publicly and then act differently. Seems to set a bad precedent.

Arbitration Numbers Out

All teams and players arbitration hearing requests are now out. Ryan Howard wants to get paid it seems, and David Weathers shows that even 15+ year vets can go to arb. Anyone notice any numbers that seem way out of whack? As a whole I think it still shows how vastly underpaid players with < 6 years service time are and why its hard to overrate prospects, just so much savings.
