If Im in Poiles shoes and I know that I cant get more than one year no matter what then I have zero to lose and possibly a million or more dollars to gain by going through with the arbitration. Its a little too late to worry about hurt feelings.
What I am anxious to hear is not Poiles comments but Weber's. Hopefully he mans up and explains why he only wanted a one year deal and we can put all this to rest.
Saving a million dollars is not worth the potential strain arbitration can put between Weber and managements relationship.
I have to agree 100 percent with Trig. This offseason has failed to capture any momentum left at the end of the year. Whether that is managements fault or not I don't know. It's really irrelevant.
