I'm new here. So at the beginning of my first season, I didn't really understand how arbitration worked, and I made the mistake that if you wanted to let an arb player go, you just didn't go to arbitration with them, rather than realizing you had to actually click somewhere to decline offering them anything. Because of this, I ended up resigning a ton of players that I didn't want to keep, and gave them huge raises (Since it gives them 70% of what they want automatically right?) over their previous year's arbitration, despite ratings being almost identical between the 2 seasons.
As such, if I'm interested in bringing these guys back now for next season in arbitration, but at way reduced salaries, is this now possible? Or will they get the higher salary they made this season?
Kenny Boone only made $1.6m in arbitration the year before, he got $6.4m with me when I did arbitration with him. Is there anyway I'll get the arbitrator to give him a figure closer to the $1.6m figure again? His ratings were identical between the 2 seasons, so I'm confused why the previous owner was able to give him such a low salary compared to what I did. I don't think he's worth 6M per year, so I'll have to trade him if I Want anything of value in return. Thanks!
