Cubs avoid salary arbitration with Michael Wuertz as they agree on contract
Michael Wuertz and the Chicago Cubs avoided salary arbitration on Monday as they both agreed on a new one year contract. Â Wuertz was hoping for $900,00+ and he settled for $860,000 from the Cubs for the 2008 season.
Pretty good deal for both parties involved I think. Â Wuertz is a good innings eater out of the bullpen.Â Hopefully he will have a little better control in 08 however, and puts away batters instead of wasting so many pitches and end up walking them.
