Dutch Boy Signs
Once again, the Cubs manage to avoid arbitration (is any other team even close to being this allergic to arb hearings?), and settle on a one-year, $1.4M deal with Kyle Farnsworth. That splits the submitted figures right down the middle, which is what always seems to happen when the parties settle just before their hearing date. So, why not just meet in the middle two months ago?
Anyway, it's fair for both sides, so everyone should be happy. I was getting a little scared that the club would actually have to rip Farnsworth to his face, but we've thankfully avoided that psycho-calamity. Now, let's load up the dog-sled, and mush on to Mesa!
