Re: Mets Looking For Bad Contracts: Arroyo? Cordero?
At this point, I'll also third what Caveat said. I still feel the same about Arroyo as I did three months ago, before this season, last season, before last season, etc. When I say that, I mean both the good and bad attributes. But at this juncture, while I think he's slightly overpaid, I don't see any chances of getting much in return for him and accordingly, the Reds are better off holding on to him in that scenario. Despite lacking a true top of the rotation starter for next year, the Reds' staff is going to be a lot better than most (potentially). The emergence of Homer Bailey is giving them a pretty good staff, assuming he picks up where he left off this year.
