Buster Posey
Buster Posey has earned a very nice raise through salary arbitration and didn’t have to go to a hearing to get the increase in pay.

Shabbat Shalom from New York, New York, where the temperature is just slightly cooler than that of tropical Miami, Florida.  I will be speaking at the 4th Annual New York Law School Sports Law Symposium later today on NFL concussion litigation and breaking into the sports industry.  In two weeks, I will be up in Chicago speaking at DePaul Law School’s Sports Law Symposium, also on concussion issues.  This week on Forbes, I have been heavy on the NFL Combine: (1) World Baseball Classic Continues To Show Ability To Benefit Global Growth Of Baseball; (2) NBA All-Star Weekend Welcomes Variety Of Events (Plus Brands); (3) The NFL Combine From A Football Agent’s Perspective; (4) Following The NFL Combine On The Second Screen; and (5) The Economics Of The NFL Combine.  And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
