I had forgotten about complete games. Good work by Bronson Arroyo yesterday, huh?
Boy, Arroyo is a frustrating type. He was so bad to start the year, but he’s had several stretches in his Reds career that have been completely lights-out. Truthfully, he’s not a bad #3 pitcher. He’s not better than that on a consistent basis, and there’s an argument to be made that he’s making too much for a #3 pitcher (I don’t necessarily agree), but I like having the guy around. If nothing else, Arroyo gives this team some character.
Of course, as Winston Wolfe says, just because you are a character doesn’t mean that you have character.
