The Angels and Wally Joyner exchanged arbitration figures Friday, but not pleasantries. The Angels filed at $750,000. Joyner, who made $340,000 last year, came in at $965,000. If it goes to a February hearing, an arbitrator will choose one of the two figures as Joyner's 1989 salary.

Joyner and the Angels can continue negotiating until the arbitrator makes a decision, but attorney Barry Axelrod, who represents Joyner, said the $215,000 difference seems too large to produce a compromise.
