With players and teams exchanging arbitration figures, a lot of players signed today to avoid arbitration. I will try my best to include the most important ones, but you never know who I missed.

And if Washington and Rafael whoops Alfonso Soriano go to arbitration, Soriano would get $12 million if he won and $10 million if he lost. Call me crazy, but I believe there is a number that is exactly halfway from $10 million and $12 million.

The figures submitted by the players and the teams.

So Bob...

has Jeff Kent ever made $12mil in one season?

or, hmm, Roberto Alomar maybe?

or Ryne Sandberg?

or Rogers Hornsby?

or (this one's for Steve) Chase Utley?

...and don't the Nationals already have a 2B anyways?!?

Jeff Kent's highest salary has been $10 million.

Soriano can make $12 million because he's an outfielder!

I was struggling to figure out how on earth Rafael Soriano had gotten his salary up in the eight-digit range (let alone wound up with the Nats) before finally realizing you meant Alfonso.

Thanks for the correction. I was having arbitration settlement overload.
