According to multiple reports, The Cubs and closer Carlos Marmol have avoid arbitration today. He will earn 2.125 million in 2010. Carlos Marmol filed for 2.5 million and the Cubs only offer 1.75 million. They pretty much met in mid point of both offers.
I think that is a fair offer and only have Theriot left to sign in arbitration. It seems like Theriot will go to an arbitration hearing, Levine and Miles thinks so. I think marmol should get more money that Theriot.
I will keep you posted as maybe Theriot will change his mind but seems unlikely as right now.
