Re: "What if" v. Playoff rotation
Arroyo was in the postseason in 2003-2005 with the Sawx. Coming out of the bullpen, he posted a 7.41 ERA in 17.0 IP and a 1.647 WHIP.
Not particularly dominant, but I think it shows he isn't effective out of the bullpen. He had pitched well during those regular seasons as a starter.
So anyway.. I would definitely put him as our #1 or #2 starter in the playoffs.
And I really REALLY hope that Harang does not get to sniff the playoffs if we make if there. I do not want him in there at all.
