Brewers, Shaun Marcum avoid arbitration

Milwaukee Brewers Marcum reacts between pitches against the Boston Red Sox during their MLB game in Boston

The Brewers and starter Shaun Marcum avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year contract. The settlement was for $7.725 million, which was at the exact midpoint between their competing offers.

Marcum’s 2011 was good overall — he was 13-7 with a 3.54 ERA in 200.2 innings — but he ran out of gas at the end of the season.

    Hopefully he can use his new salary to buy a pillow so he doesn’t have to rest on his left bicep like that in between pitches to get some decent rest.

    Hope he announces BSOL. Okobo’s All-BSOL team needs a flyball pitcher.

    Life doesn’t seem fair when Edwin Jackson earns more than both marcum and garza.

    Jackson certainly outpitched Marcum in the playoffs. Marcum was beyond terrible.
