The Los Angeles Dodgers offered arbitration to Manny Ramirez and Derek Lowe. Manny made $20 million last year. If he ever got in front of a panel, he’d get some sort of raise. While it’s hard to imagine Scott Boras accepting arbitration, he did it with Greg Maddux in 2003.
I bet a few name players will accept in this market. For some guys, it might make sense.
See MLB Trade Rumors for all your arbitration deadline needs at this point. I think I’m calling it a night.
