Big pre-arbitration deals

Friday was a busy day for clubs and players to work out contracts to avoid arbitration, as dozens agreed to terms on one-year deals. Among the biggest names is National League MVP Buster Posey, who will earn $8 million in 2013. Look for the San Francisco Giants to work on a multi-year solution at some point fairly soon to avoid bloated salaries going forward, though Posey is about as worth it as player in the game right now.
