A glance at the arbitration-eligibles on the left coast, identifying player comparables and non-tender candidates.

About 220 players will be eligible for salary arbitration this off-season. Some will not receive a contract offer and become free agents December 2. Others will agree to terms before the new year. Many will file for arbitration in early January, with the vast majority of that group settling on 2011 contracts before arguing their cases at hearings in February.

Transaction Action: International Arbitration Avoidance Day

Christina Kahrl

A wrap-up of all the deals, major and mainly minor, made before arbitration figures are exchanged.

Most of this is just a long list of everyone happily skipping the process, having used it to get a sense of what they want, and then eagerly avoiding presenting cases to the now infamously dim panels. Having seen the sort of money shelled out, we now have a much better sense of what teams have on board as far as their 2010 financial commitments, and what they might be capable of affording to repair a problem at one position or another. Or not, in the case of the Mets and their putting a brave face on employing Omir Santos as their initial catcher of choice, but with as much spinning as they're resorting to these days, perhaps we can consider that Ed Hearn's revenge.

Arbitration Theory

18

Tommy Bennett

With so many surprising decisions on who was offered arbitration and who wasn't, perhaps there's a simpler way to make the decision.

As news of the arbitration offers (or lack thereof) trickled out on Tuesday, I found myself growing increasingly disappointed with the number of teams failing to make offers to their players. Of the 21 Type-A free agents who could be offered arbitration, 11 were not. That number is stupefying. Of the 53 Type-B free agents, 38 were not offered arbitration. That number is staggering.

Faced with the prospect of a mystifying reality, my first recourse is to quantify. Sure, my desk is covered with envelopes onto the backs of which I've scribbled chicken scratch. But at least I experienced a degree of certainty. Let me share my back-of-the-envelope Theory of the Arbitration Offer.

Prospectus Today: The Risks of Arbitration

35

Joe Sheehan

With the offers of arbitration in place, has the market corrected from last year's Type-A fiasco?

The deadline for offering arbitration to free agents passed last night, and once again a fairly small number of players received offers, just 23 of 70 ranked free agents. I've written in the past that for almost all ranked players, this should be a fairly simple decision: almost any player good enough to be a ranked free agent is good enough to warrant having back on a one-year deal with a salary determined through arbitration. Given that this offer is a necessary step in receiving draft-pick compensation for free agents-if you decline to offer arbitration, you forfeit the right to compensation-it's long been my contention that teams should err on the side of making the offer. The downside is very small.

The Ledger Domain: The 2007 Salary Arbitration Results

0

Maury Brown

Summing up the totals on the more than 100 players who filed for arbitration this offseason.

It was the foresight of Marvin Miller, just after Curt Flood lost his challenge of MLB's antitrust exemption in the Supreme Court, that set the stage for the creation of salary arbitration. Miller understood that trying to achieve free agency for players immediately after the Flood ruling was not going to be fruitful, so salary arbitration was offered as an alternative. With the exception of Gussie Busch and Charlie Finley, the owners accepted the process as part of the new deal. Miller saw this as one of the greatest achievements of his early career as executive director of the MLBPA. He correctly anticipated that even though some players would lose their arbitration cases, they would still see a boost to their salaries as compared to not having the process.
