ERA, perception, scouting, and almost every counting statistic in baseball pegs Arroyo as an above average starter.
Except that isn't accurate. His FIP is a composite of his peripherals....how could they scream he's all that but not lead to a FIP that was?
Perception? His '06 was an outlier and he really, really liked the Reds defense last season.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
