I know we were all clamoring for Bronson Arroyo to be traded a couple of months ago, but he’s been pretty darn good (forgive the strong language) since the All-Star break. How good? OMGReds has some numbers.
I definitely thought trading Arroyo was the right move at the time, and it still might be the best thing to do in the off-season. With the injury to Edinson Volquez that will likely cause him to miss the entire 2010 season, however, I’m not sure the Reds can afford to trade Arroyo. They’re going to need some arms for the rotation.
