Impartial Arbitrator Needed

But that may be hard to find after the headline this afternoon:

Baseball Fires Arbitrator Who Overturned Braun Ban
Either side- MLB or the Players' Union- can fire an arbitrator at will, it seems. Since no arbitrator has ever overturned a ban before, no one knew what MLB might do if one did.

He was the longest serving arbitrator, serving since 1999. One little mistake, like disagreeing with MLB, can sure end your job, it appears.
