You've gotta think he has developed some pretty decent trade value by know.
I'm not baseball smart or statistics smart enough to figure out Arroyo's chances of repeating last year's performance, but my inclination is to believe that it's unlikely.
If we could get something great in return for him (maybe Boston's willing?) would you all be willing to see him go? I'd take a solid #3 or 4 plus an offensive upgrade...
What are your thoughts?...
It's been suggested before. Unless you are doing a total fire sale and rebuild I don't think it makes sense to trade 50% of your reliable starters away. We finally have 2 pitchers we can count on, why give that up after only one year?

I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate
