The arbitration hearing left deep wounds for the Milwaukee Brewers former Cy Young winner Corbin Burnes, who said, among other things, that his relationship with the team is permanently damaged. 

The St. Louis Cardinals' Ryan Helsley was also disappointed and called some of the things he heard about himself from his front office, "tough to swallow".

Time for baseball to find a new method of sorting out these contract disputes.
