Sean Burnett loses his arbitration with the Nats

Feb 19, 2010, 10:50 AM EDT

Bill Ladson tweets that Nats reliever Sean Burnett lost his arbitration. He’ll make $775,000 in 2010. He had asked for $925,000. Between this and the Brian Bruney arbitration, the Nats bullpen is gettin’ shelled before the first pitch has even been thrown.

In other news, I’m noticing that every arbitration result has been reported first by MLB.com beat reporters. There are a lot of good ones over there, and in the grand scheme of things this isn’t that important, but I wonder if the teams are shooting the results to them first.  Despite the fact that they’re paid by Major League Baseball, MLB.com reporters aren’t usually given any special access.

Like I said, this is no big deal. It’s just one of those things I’m noticing while waiting around for Tiger Woods to pretend to be sorry for living like a rock star and getting brutally assaulted by his wife.

    RE: Tiger Woods — My sports radio is playing the Tiger address (ugh). He did make it a point to state that he never took PEDs. And, now he’s talking about Buddism. Where art thou Gator?

    I can see pretending to feel sorry of his sexcapades, but I doubt he’s faking being sorry about Elin clubbing him or that all this excrement has hit the fan.

    YES! Great piece, keep up the terrific work. This is the type of information that should gain recognition for it’s craft. More writers should learn from you. This is right on the money.

    Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.
