BREAKING: Cubs Win Theriot Arbitration

Chicago Cubs News

It may be a pyrrhic victory, but the Chicago Cubs have prevailed in arbitration with shortstop Ryan Theriot. The first-time arbitration eligible Theriot had requested $3.4 million, but will instead make $2.6 million this year.

Now, let the healing begin.

It will be interesting to learn how this affects the Cubs’ budget. Were they counting on Theriot making $3.4 million, and thus, an extra $800k is available? Even if it is available, will they use it to pick up another bullpen arm, or will they bank it for possible mid-season needs?
