Brewers offer arbitration to CC, Sheets

As expected, Milwaukee offered arbitration to CC Sabathia and Ben Sheets today. Both are Type A free agents, so signing them will cost a draft pick.

Can’t imagine either of them accepts it.

In response to a few e-mails, the arbitration rules have changed under the new CBA. There was a time that not offering arbitration meant a team could not negotiate with that player until May. That is no longer the case. The Yankees could not offer any of their guys and still sign them.
