Cody Ross wins his arbitration

Feb 16, 2010, 11:20 AM EDT

Marlins outfielder Cody Ross has won his salary arbitration, receiving $4.45 million. The team offered $4.2 million. Ross hit .290 with 24 homers and 90 RBIs last season and made $2.3 million.

As Sports Law Blog mentioned yesterday, Ross and Corey Hart have the same amount of service time, so the fact that Hart won last week — and the fact that the player’s demand wasn’t too terribly higher than the team’s in Ross’ case — was bad news for the Fish heading into this thing.

    As happy as I am for Uggla, Johnson and Cody, I feel terrible for the waitresses at Scrooge McLoria’s favorite bistro. Every time he loses a round to the Union and M. Night Sham Dross, or whatever the arbitrator’s name is, the tightwad probably cuts the tip at the restaurant by another 5 per cent.
    About the only upside to this that I can see is that he’ll also compensate by spending less on the Mermaids’ costumes – less fabric, less outlay. Now if only he would shell out a little bit more to hire a choreographer who could teach them to dance. But it ain’t gonna happen in my lifetime.
