Last day to offer Raul arbitration!
Rumor over at Pravda is that they’ll do it. We’ve written about this before, it’s a gimmie. He accepts — unlikely — and the team gets him back on a one-year deal, can plunk him down at DH, and pays a good rate. If he declines, they get some draft deliciousness thanks to MLB’s crazy compensation system.
Do it! Do it!
Also, they could offer to go to arbitration with Bloomquist and Cairo, if they were crazy. Bloomquist has made just shy of $4.5m wearing a Mariner uniform so far. It’d be great if they could stop giving him money.
