Re: I'm so glad Wayne didn't.......
Arroyo for Reyes and Escobar was a horrible trade offer that would have vastly undersold Arroyo. He makes 26.45 mllion over the next 3 years, which is a bargain for the current pitching market. Why trade that for a pitcher with mid-rotation upside and a 24 (25 in November) year old shortshop who is likly going to have to play second or third, and doesn't have the power to be a huge asset at third. That trade is just a bad use of resources for the Reds. Arroyo may have a crappy game once in a while, but he is still an above average pitcher locked up to a below market contract.
