2/19 Theriot has hearing in Florida
The Cubs and shortstop Ryan Theriot had their arbitration hearing on Friday in Tampa, Fla. A decision was not expected to be announced until Saturday. GM Jim Hendry attended the hearing, his first. Hendry had settled the previous 36 cases. Theriot was asking for $3.4 million while the Cubs had countered at $2.6 million. It’s the Cubs’ first hearing since Mark Grace in 1993.
