I'm straining my memory banks trying to recall the last Sox player to go to arbitration. I think it's been a while. Didn't Garland go to arbitration one year? Anyone?

Nice to beat both of my struggling former Stations,even on a small item(things are all relative of course)like this.

Did you get tickets to that game yet? My friend's mom bought a few for him and she said the line was HUGE. All you can find on TicketMaster is lawn and grandstand seats.

I'm sure the Grobster has SOME kind of connections though :smile: .

Lawn seats in both Ho Ho Kam and TEP(Tuscon)are great. Cant beat the Sun and 77* heat!!

No.2 - I believe the Sox avoided arbitration in '03 with a Nov. signing.

Interesting. Does that speak to KW's relationship with a majority of agents, or is this a trend for many teams?

Who was keeping the payroll numbers? Time for an update with Rowand and Vizcaino's salaries. This should put them over $70M.

My math may be wrong, but it looks like 70,672,500. That's adding 1.66 mil for Rowand and 750K for Viscaino.

No way is our payroll going to be over 70mm. JR is cheap.

Hey, we showed up more last year and they put it back into the team. Gotta respect that. Let's hope for a huge year in 05, and in turn an even bigger payroll. I don't think that's being too naive, after all there is precedent with that.

Another Set-Up Guy?? Interesting Stats...Thoughts?

The Chicago White Sox agreed to terms with their last arbitration-eligible player Tuesday, securing pitcher Luis Vizcaino for the 2005 season with a $1.3 million contract.

The 30-year-old right-hander was 4-4 with one save and a 3.75 ERA in a team-high 73 appearances for Milwaukee in 2004. He was acquired by the White Sox on Dec. 13 along with outfielder Scott Podsednik and minor leaguer Travis Hinton in exchange for Carlos Lee. Vizcaino held opponents to a .228 (61-for-267) average last season, including just .163 (21-for-129) against left-handed batters, which ranked second among National League relievers. He is expected to serve in a setup capacity for manager Ozzie Guillen's team in 2005.
