Daniel Descalso declined to answer questions at Winter Warm-Up regarding his ongoing arbitration discussions with John Mozeliak…but Mozeliak had no problems answering questions during his time at the podium.
When asked if the two sides felt close while exchanging numbers, Mozeliak had this to say:
“It never felt like we were that close, so we may see a hearing.”
Mozeliak went on to discuss the historical significance of such an occurrence if the two sides did in fact find themselves at that eventuality — a sign, perhaps, of the seriousness of Mo’s comments.
We may very well see the uncomfortable reality of an arbitration hearing between the Cardinals and Daniel Descalso.
