He was one that didn’t like the arbitration?
Yeah his feelings were hurt because the Brewers thought that he was worth ... like $750K per year ... less than he thought he was worth. Also a Cy Young winner a couple of years back, and I think he pouted through last year over the arbitration ruling.

Truthfully, I never liked the arbitration thing, both in real life and pro sports. I mean, so many products and services you buy these days where you're agreeing to the "Terms of Service" ... you agree to not sue the vendor instead opting for arbitration which is largely skewed into the vendor's choice of arbitrators. Anyway, it hasn't impacted my life ... yet ... so I'll just get on my life.

Will be interesting to see which direction the Brewers head in. Trying to compete with the current roster or purge some of the "older" and still valuable parts while they can, for lots of young promising talent. Keep an eye on Devin Williams, Adames and Peralta.

Yes, he won a Cy a couple of years ago but I don't think he's been as good the past couple of years. I am not thrilled with the return, however. I hear rumblings of Adames being moved too. We shall see.
