Jeff Mathis wins his arbitration case

Feb 19, 2010, 2:28 PM EST

The players strike back. Angels’ catcher Jeff Mathis beat the club, winning a raise from $450,000 to $1.3 million. The Angels were arguing for $700,000. Owners lead the players 4-3 this offseason with one arbitration — Ryan Theriot — left to go.

If Theriot wins they go to penalty kicks.

    That’s a rather large difference. It seems to me when two figures are close, owners tend to win, if not, players tend to win. Does this suggest players are more reasonable than owners?

    Hurray for Mathis! I love the Angels but they embarrassed themselves by being so cheap with a valuable player.Tony Reagins is learning on the job. I hope he learned a lesson.
