They didn't offer him arbitration. He can't even negotiate with them again until May 1st. That's what was really surprising about all this. I thought they'd offer it to him for sure.
I wasn't thinking, I knew that was the case when you don't offer arbitration. Thanks for reminding me.
I was bummed to see Bengie part ways, but the more time goes by the more I am excited about Mathis. I don't think he will produce like Bengie right away, but he needs to get his shot.
The Angels have a great farm system, but everyone seems to be blocked right now. At least we moved one FAT roadblock out of the way.
