MLB files for arbitration with the American Arbitration Association to settle the Stadium dispute with the District. The whole situation gets more laughable by the day, while "dispute" is probably too nice a term to use to describe the steaming pile of crap is the negotiations between DC and MLB.
Meanwhile, Anthony Williams appears to be watching a completely different channel: "There will be give and take on both sides...You would expect in a negotiation that they would put this in as a legal placeholder, but it's really questionable what there is to arbitrate. We have an agreement, and we're working within the parameters of that." (Washington Post, 1/5/2006)
Williams might do well to remind the grandstanding City Council that there is, in fact, an agreement in place with MLB.
Williams also took offense to Bob DuPuy's Post Op-ed piece in Tuesday's paper: "No one should be pointing fingers at anyone else." (Washington Post, 1/5/2006)
