Here is the press release regarding Guillen's arbitration hearing this morning:
The Angels and Jose Guillen have resolved the grievance filed over the Club's discipline of Mr. Guillen for his actions during and after the game against Oakland on Sept. 25, 2004. The parties reached a financial settlement, the terms of which will not be disclosed. By agreement, Guillen will not rejoin the Club for the balance of the championship season.

All told, probably the best result for the team - they won't have the distraction of a disgruntled and smug Guillen on the bench, or the temptation to give in and play him when things get tight.
