Article from Forbes says the Nats won't sign Arrieta because of CBT.

I felt like they simplified the matter. It's not that the Nats won't sign Arrieta because of the CBT. It's that Rizzo doesn't think that the current version of Arrieta is worth exceeding the CBT. Particularly if he wants to make a move at the deadline that will take them into that money.
