View Full Version : Harang and Arroyo need to step up

I know this has been discussed a lot the last few days, but the time is now for both Harang and Arroyo to show everyone what they're made of. Are they legitimate front of the rotation starters? Is Arroyo the pitcher he was in the beginning of the year? Can Harang pitch well under pressure? Wednesday and Thursday's games are absolutely huge for this team. A mark of a true front of the rotation starter is someone who can stop a losing streak and beat the best the teams in the league. While I hope Milton can pitch well, I don't have a good feeling about tonight and I just don't think he can duplicate his last performance against the Cards. With this team on the verge of falling out of the division race, these two guys could give a huge lift to a team that sorely needs it. They've both turned in great performances earlier in the season against the Cards, so we know they're capable. Will they be able to do it when the pressure is on?

Last time out against the cardinals Milton did pitch good. One person missing out of the Cardinals lineup that day was Albert Pujols. Pujols is around 1 RBI a game and this is with him being on the DL. The Cardinals lineup will be vastly improved this time around then the last time around Milton, Harang, and Arroyo faced the Cardinals. By all means I hope these 3 pitchers can get it together and put a little win streak together against these cardinals. I have trouble thinking Milton can do this but Harang and Arroyo need step it up and prove that they can be that 1 2 punch they were earlier in the year.
