Arbitration Decisions: Martin Maldonado

Wow!! Just days after I laid out on this website why the Brewers should and most likely would tender 2016 National League home run (and strikeout) king Chris Carter, David Stearns shouted a big “screw you, idiot,” at me, as it was reported on Monday that Carter would not be tendered a contract.

That topic has already been covered extensively (here by Julien Assouline), and I’m sure it will be addressed from various other perspectives throughout the offseason.
