Yankees win Wang's arbitration case

Peter Abraham is reporting that the Yankees have won the arbitration case against Chien-Ming Wang.

Wang will receive $4 million this season, and will have to go through this process again next off-season.

Wang had wanted a long-term deal, but the Yankees were hesitant to oblige, saying that it's difficult for pitchers to stay healthy.

The Yankees and Wang were only $600,000 apart, so I don't know why they didn't settle on $4.3 million and not go to a hearing. That has to be a miserable experience for both sides.
