Re: Kyle Lohse
Also, I don't mind that Wayne extended Arroyo earlier than he had to.
Sure, it was a risk, but it was a smart risk. It's nice to keep Arroyo happy. I'm sure the other players noticed to. It's nice to see the front office/ownership change from its old philosphy of waiting until the 11th hour to negotiate and then when the player bolts, calling him greedy, a bad seed, or whatever.
Sure, extending Arroyo might come back and bite us in the rearend, but it was a risk worth taking, IMO.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
