Marcus Stroman won his arbitration case with the Jays. The arbitrator decided Stroman deserves the $3.4 million he submitted, not the $3.1 million the team figured he was worth.
I’m not sure how the arbitrator can decide between those two numbers. It is funny how I can think $300,000 is nothing when it is baseball money. I mean, if offered I’d take $300,000. That would buy at least a month’s worth of cheese doodles. Or a half dozen HDMH caps.
I’m sure it is worth the money to the Jays if it makes Marcus happy.

Real fake games are almost here!
