Could the Cubs be headed for arbitration?

 I can't believe that this hasn't been brought up yet, at least to my knowledge. I just read on http://www.dailyherald.com/sports/beatwriters.asp?column=miles&id=267721 that now that we're no longer in the Andy McPhail era, is it possible that players could now be heading towards the hearings?
 Say what you want about McPhail, he did have a knack about not letting it get that far, avoiding messy marriages.
 The article mentions three players. Mark Prior, Will Ohman, and most importantly, Carlos Zambrano.
 It brings up a good point about Z. Just like Ramirez, Lee, and Wood. The guess is that they'll sign Z to a one year deal and renegotiate a long term deal. I hope so.
 The word on Prior is that they won't cut his salary of $3.65 million, (they can by 20%), but they won't offer a raise. Prior, (who is my favorite player, sigh) should take advice from his old buddy, Wood. Loyalty goes along way in Cubs fan's hearts.
 Not by suprise, they think Ohman will go to arbitration, as he almost did last year.
 The article talks of the spring training invitees and reports no new progress on the Jones trade as well as Cliff Floyd.
 Let's hope for the best on both sides, the players and management.
