Arbitration News

From the AP:

Shawn Chacon asked the New York Yankees for $4.15 million in salary arbitration on Tuesday and Aaron Small requested $1.45 million.

New York offered $3.1 million to Chacon and $1,025,000 to Small.

Gosh, if I'm Cashman, I call up Small's agent and say "Here's $1.2 - let's get this done." And, I bet that would be grabbed quickly. Shoot, I'd do the same with Shawnie and make the number $3.6 mill.

It would be a shame for these two to end in a hearing - since they're close.
