Players File for Arbitration: Sixty-five players have filed for arbitration as the Major League Baseball deadline passed on Friday. The most notable names are Roy Halladay of the Blue Jays and Eric Gagne of the Dodgers, both of whom won the Cy Young this past year in their respective leagues, as well as Cardinals slugger Albert Pujols. The number of arbitration filings fell for the third straight year and was the lowest since 1999. If players and teams do not reach agreements, the hearings will be held in February.
