Marlins keep Willis in the fold for another year; Cabrera on deck
by Bob Timmermann
Dontrelle Willis and Florida avoided arbitration after agreeing to a 1-year, $6.45 million contract.
Third baseman Miguel Cabrera is eligible for arbitration. Last year, Cabrera made $472,000.
I can picture the negotiations:
Cabrera's agent: Arbitration?
Larry Beinfest: Yes, we'll offer him $7 million for a year
Cabrera's agent: But he only made $472,000 last year
Larry Beinfest: Well, then this would be more, wouldn't it?
