Re: NLDS Game 2 - Reds at Giants 10/7/12
The "experienced vet" argument carries more weight in some cases than others, but I think that after his career with his much-beloved Sox (pitching mediocrely, mostly out of the pen), and just the one postseason blip with the Reds, Arroyo is determined not to let this chance get away from him. He's 35; he won't have many more chances. And he has the presence of mind to stay calm and back it up with stuff. with salad.
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
