While the contract dispute is a matter of $600,000, chump change to the Yankees, the Yanks will most likely head to arbitration with Chien-Ming Wang on February 14. Happy Valentine’s Day. Wang wants $4.6 million; the Yankees want to pay him $4 million. I’d think the Yanks would reward one of the better AL starters with the extra $600K. Brian at Depressed Fan offers up an excellent analysis of the situation.
