Re: What did Walt Jocketty do differently?
Arroyo's been dogged for the same "peripherals" since the day Krivsky traded for him. It's old now. In my opinion, the stat guys have been looking at the wrong stuff with him. He's about IP, starts and quality start % IMHO.
And beyond that, he's as close to an artist as there is pitching in baseball these days. That's what folks really shouldn't miss.
