Dellin Betances’ lost case against the Yankees shows the arbitration system is broken | FOX Sports

I was busy yesterday and haven’t read all the hot takes but, other than it being smarter for Levine to keep his mouth shut, Betances outcome fits within the history of the arbitration framework. If the system has been truly flawed why didn’t the MLBPA make it point during the recently settled contract? I get Betances complaint but the outcome shouldn’t have been unexpected. Set-up men don’t get paid in arbitration.
