Everybody Say "Woot."

The club announced its signing of the last three arbitration-eligible players late Thursday.

All were one-year deals.  Morgan Ensberg got 4.35 million bucks, Adam Everett got 2.8 million and Jason Lane got 1.05 mil.

The signings keep a ten year stretch alive during which the club has avoided going to the arbitration table.  The last player to go to arbitration was the late Darryl Kile, in 1997.

Here are the latest contract numbers for those with a realistic shot at breaking camp with the big club, at least near as I can reckon:
