Arbitration Offer Predictions

Tom Dierkes of MLBTR.com predicts whether or not the 70 eligible players will be offered arbitration by their current teams. Here are his picks (along with my disagreements).

Bengie Molina (A) - Yes
Billy Wagner (A) - Yes
Chone Figgins (A) - Yes
Darren Oliver (A) - Yes
Jason Bay (A) - Yes
Jermaine Dye (A) - No
John Lackey (A) - Yes
Johnny Damon (A) - No (SportsBanter says: Yes, the Yankees are already talking about offering a two-year deal. It makes much more sense to take it a year at a time with the Caveman to see if his skills diminish.)
Jose Valverde (A) - No (SportsBanter says: Yes.)
Kevin Gregg (A) - No
LaTroy Hawkins (A) - No (SportsBanter says: Yes.)
Marco Scutaro (A) - Yes
Matt Holliday (A) - Yes
Miguel Tejada (A) - No
Mike Gonzalez (A) - Yes
Octavio Dotel (A) - No
Orlando Cabrera (A) - No
Orlando Hudson (A) - No (SportsBanter says: Yes, despite winning another Gold Glove, Hudson was benched in favor of Ronnie Belliard down the stretch. However, that does not diminish the fact that he was a relative bargain last year.)
Placido Polanco (A) - No
Rafael Betancourt (A) - Yes
Rafael Soriano (A) - Yes
Randy Wolf (A) - Yes
Adam LaRoche (B) - No (SportsBanter says: Yes, LaRoche seems destined to head back to the A-T-L so why not get compensated if he changes his mind?)
Adrian Beltre (B) - No (SportsBanter says: Yes.)
Andy Pettitte (B) - No
Bob Howry (B) - No
Braden Looper (B) - No
Brandon Lyon (B) - Yes
Brian Giles (B) - No
Brian Shouse (B) - No
Carl Pavano (B) - Yes
Carlos Delgado (B) - No (SportsBanter says: Yes.)

Doug Brocail (B) - No
