How good has Bronson Arroyo been? Well, he was special in Monday night’s big win over the Cardinals, who now trail the Reds by a game in the NL Central standings. I particularly enjoyed this quote:

Like with Boston against New York in the AL East, Arroyo will draw a sizeable amount of assignments to face the NL Central-rival Cardinals this season and beyond.

“This is the one team I want to make sure I can feel comfortable [against] and feel like I can beat them,” he said.

Between Arroyo and Harang, I’m very comfortable with the front end of this rotation, which is something I haven’t been able to say in years. With the offense scoring runs all over the place, well, I’m starting to believe in this team.

After what we’ve been through as Reds fans over the last decade, I want to believe.

    Bronson Arroyo has been lights out! The Pena for Arroyo trade might turn into another Frank Robinson for Milt Pappas deal. Only this time…IN REVERSE!

    Greg D,
    I think you’re right. Let’s see if those two can motivate the rest of the staff. Pitching hasn’t been too shabby in the last week or so.
