Fuentes Loses Arbitration
 
Sorry Brian. I like you, and all. But you aren't the closer, and $5.05 million for a set-up man is fair.

The Colorado Rockies defeated reliever Brian Fuentes in their salary arbitration case today, meaning the left-hander will make $5.05 million this season instead of the $6.5 million he requested.

This is only the third time the Rockies have gone to a hearing in franchise history. Fuentes, a three-time All-Star closer, is scheduled to be the Rockies' primary setup reliever this season.

A bad day in the life of Brian Fuentes. What a problem to have.

I wish I could lose out for only 5 million.

If he would like a shoulder to cry on, we can find him Jose Valverde's phone number. Jose just lost his arb case too - and he led the NL in saves last year.
