I don't like him.  I'd knock it down a couple bucks, especially so as not to get him.

I'm working on Big Prices for the Guide. Today I have Kyle Gibson with a price of $8. What do you think?

Kyle Gibson (P) MIN - Mar. 16

Gibson continued his strong spring by giving up just one run over five innings Thursday
to lower his ERA to 1.80.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Gibson has seven strikeouts and no walks in 10 innings this spring. He'll begin the season as the fourth starter as Ervin Santana's finger injury
sidelines him for the first month. Gibson's spring success could be a carryover
from the second half of last year when he went 7-3 with a 3.76 ERA and increased
his strikeout rate from 5.6 to 8.2 K/9.

It's interesting.  Baseball-style arbitration (also known as final offer arbitration) is supposed to cause the parties to make reasonable offers.  Reasonable offers are supposed to lead to an agreement.  But, in this situation, it also may lead to the parties to be convinced that they've gone as far as they could possibly go to be reasonable and unwilling to make another move.  Also, with such a small distance, they could also say, what have I to lose by going forward.  

We've used baseball arbitration a couple times for term collective bargaining agreements.  With that, however, the language from the other party is usually significantly different.  It can drive the parties to settle some articles that had remained outstanding.

Lost in arbitration. Was asking $4.55 million, is getting 4.2.

How is it they couldn't find a middle ground?
