The hot stove is not exactly going as most of us expected it to go, and I usually can only speak for myself but I think I’m comfortable saying that this winter is slowly killing each and every one of us. Either that or we’re already dead and this is purgatory. Regardless, even if the hot stove doesn’t pick up when it’s supposed to there are some parts of the offseason that have no choice but staying on schedule. One of those is arbitration, the archaic payment system in baseball that either needs a massive reform or needs to be removed altogether.
