Re: Bronson Arroyo starting the AS game?
I think at this point both Arroyo and now Harang deserve to be all-stars. 3.45 ERA with 9 wins, lots of innings and K's. This is what they will look at when selecting pitchers.
The only guys who have better numbers than that combined are:
Webb, Arroyo, Capuano, Glavine, and Penny.
Guys like Carpenter and Schmidt are behind in wins.
NOTE: I don't actually think wins (and not neccessarily ERA) is a good metric in evaluating pitchers but everyone in baseball seems to.
