Carlos and the Cubs split the difference, while A-Ram got a little less than half. The idea is they’ll do a long term deal before the end of Spring Training.
Dave Hansen was given an NRI.
I’ve figured out my 40 Man problem; Scott Williamson is still a NRI. He’ll have to be put on the 40 Man to go to the 60 Day DL, I believe, so they may have to make a move before the end of spring training if they want to keep him around.
added six year major league free agency – I think. I don’t completely understand the rules governing service time (and it’s not like I can find something that actually lists days on the roster), but I think I’ve got general idea.
I’m least sure on Corey, but I believe he’s got 3+ years of service time despite having played in 5 seasons. It’s kinda funny that Corey and Prior are both up at the same time, because it feels like Corey’s been around forever and Mark still has the new car smell on him.
I don’t think Todd Wellemeyer has made a full season yet, but I may be wrong there too.
If it now says Arbitration, the club has the option to offer it, or release the player.
I rounded everything to one decimial, which turns out not to work very well with all the $50,000 contracts. I’ll go back to two next time (probably not until they start cutting people.)
