Frobby Thinks Jonathan WIll Lose


After exhaustively studying the salaries of other 2B when they had 4+ years of service time, I think Schoop will lose his arb case if he pushes it. Only one 2B with 4+ years of service has ever made $9 mm — Robinson Cano, who had 4.154 years of service time and thus was eligible for arbitration for the third time. Next behind him are Roughned Odor (who is under a long term deal that will pay him $7.83 mm when he has 4+ years of service in 2019) and Dee Gordon (who made $7.8 mm when he had 4.154 years of service; like Cano, he was going through arbitration a third time). All other active 2B made less than $7 mm: Castro $6.857 mm (4.150), Kipnis ($6.166 mm (4.069), Dozier $6 mm $4.100), Pedroia $5.75 mm (4.041), Murphy $5.7 mm (4.109), Harrison $5.25 mm (4.033), Phillips $5.187 mm (4.022) and under $5 mm from there.

Michael Williams
Michael Williams has been an Orioles fan since the sixties when his family moved from Reading Pa to York Pa. Also, the Phillies and 1964. His Grandfather got the Chef Boyardee box seats and Mike was hooked. Brooks Robinson calls him not a fan, but a friend. He has been a member of the Orioles Hangout since early in the New Millennium and Managing Editor since 2011. Or so it seems. He lives in Harrisburg PA, down by the river. Not currently in a van.
