It's a bit sad that we had to wait for Friday's arbitration deadline to see any action in the MLB offseason.
Nevertheless, we finally got some juicy and important notifications of teams avoiding arbitration with a number of players.
It all started this morning when the Toronto Blue Jays and Josh Donaldson broke the arbitration record and Toronto's Bringer of Rain signed on for a one-year $23 million contract. Damn.
Washington Nationals followed suit and signed starting pitcher Tanner Roark.
