Michael Wuertz and the Cubs are going to an arbitrator to determine what the righties salary for the 2008 season will be. Both have submitted their figures to the arbitrator and will have their hearing heard. The arbitrator will examine both side’s case and determine which figure is most warranted. Here are the figures:

Wuertz – $975,000
Cubs – $750,000

I tend to side with Wuertz. He’s pitched well for the Cubs, and it’s not asking much to pay a guy slightly under a million for that.
