Arbitration Offer Predictions For Free Agents

On October 12th, I explained what it means when a free agent is offered arbitration and also made a few loose predictions.  Tomorrow evening, those arbitration decisions will be upon us.  As far as I can tell, there are 70 Type A/B free agents.  It's time to commit to predictions on whether or not the player will be offered arbitration.  Let me know where I'm wrong in the comments.

That's 21 arb offers in total, which would be down from 24 last year.  I'm on the fence on Molina, Valverde, Hawkins, and Hudson in particular.  Thanks to all the journalists and others who offered feedback on these predictions, including Mike DiGiovanna, Tom Haudricourt, Todd Zolecki, Derrick Goold, Bob Dutton, Bill Shaikin, Mark Bowman, Kelly Thesier, T.R. Sullivan, Joe Christensen, Brian McTaggart, Chris Haft, Andrew Baggarly, Tracy Ringolsby, and Jon Paul Morosi.
