Arbitration Avoided For Donnelly

Right hander Brendan Donnelly avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one year $1.4 million contract. He was seeking $1.6 million and the Red Sox had offered him $1.15 million. That's one down, one WMP left to go. General manager Theo Epstein has never allowed an arbitration-eligible player to go all the way to a hearing. Such hearings are scheduled for next month.

I think the Red Sox should give WMP a step-up glove with a GPS locater built in to help him track those fly balls that are not hit directly at him. The ones that he has to go back on give him the most trouble, and the GPS might help him get a better jump.

All kidding aside, congratulations Brendan. Have a great year. I'll be back later this morning with something else for you. Bet on it.
