Passan: Inside the wild, wonky world of MLB salary arbitration

Passan: Inside the wild, wonky world of MLB salary arbitration

MLB JERSEYS
With $3 million at stake, the Boston Red Sox wanted to create the most compelling argument possible against Mookie Betts without alienating or insulting him. So last January, as they tried to convince a three-person arbitration panel that Betts deserved the $7.5 million salary they were offering and not the $10.5 million he requested, the Red Sox fashioned a novel approach in the typically staid, lawyerly arbitration room: They played a video talking about how good Kris Bryant was. The purpose, multiple sources in the room told ESPN, was not simply to lavish praise on the Chicago Cubs' third baseman but to make their case: As great as Mookie Betts may be, he isn't Kris Bryant. And in the world of arbitration -- an opaque, wonky process that determines salaries…

Yankees officially ink J.A. Happ; is Manny Machado next?

MLB JERSEYS
Maybe the real drama wasn't supposed to come on the pitcher's mound after all. Maybe it was supposed to come from elsewhere on the field. Say ... shortstop? Perhaps before this week is over, superstar free agent Manny Machado will be the big fish the Yankees have been looking to reel in.cheap nike nfl jerseys paypal In the meantime, rebuffed by Corbin, overlooked by Eovaldi, unable to work out a move (yet) for Kluber or Bauer and not an apparent serious suitor for Syndergaard, the Yankees have had a difficult time making the blockbuster pitching splash their fan base has so desperately wanted since ace Luis Severino's playoff debacle against Boston. Tack on already-under-contract veterans Severino and Masahiro Tanaka (and, until New York finds a suitable trade partner, Sonny Gray),…

Cubs might have to get creative without budget for a winter meetings splash

Cubs might have to get creative without budget for a winter meetings splash

MLB JERSEYS
What happens when you don't have the money to fix something that's broken? That's seemingly what the Chicago Cubs' front office is facing this winter as it attempts to improve its club without spending gobs of money on free agents. Sometimes the answer is to find a creative solution.cheap nike nfl jerseys china As is, its payroll commitments for 2019 buck right up against the luxury-tax threshold, so the notion of spending on Bryce Harper -- a name Cubs fans have been salivating over since the day they realized he and third baseman Kris Bryant were friendly -- seems farfetched. It wouldn't be if the team was willing to blow past the tax thresholds and commit to having one of the top two or three payrolls in baseball, but that…
