Hot Stove: Arbitration Deadline Tonight

Tomorrow is the first milestone of the off-season. Midnight marks the deadline where all clubs must decide whether or not to offer their six-year plus free agents arbitration.

If the team doesn't offer a free agent arbitration, they loose any draft compensation for type A or B free agents if the sign elsewhere.

For the Giants the list is short, they have no type A free agents and 2 type B free agents, Aubrey Huff and Juan Uribe.

I would be very surprised if either were not offered arbitration as both are in line for multiple year deals on the free agent market and would be unlikely to accept the Giants offer but if they did the Giants would be glad to take them back.

There shouldn't be any shocking news on this front in the morning. MLB Trade Rumors has more on every team's situation so check that out if you are interested.

If your on Twitter you should definitely follow the The Crazy Crabbers. If you're not you should really consider joining, lots of good stuff going on there.
