That's a good point as well.
I guess freaky or not, Lohse had some injuries.
Arroyo has been almost superhuman in his ability to log innings.. I mean, his ability to go out and give innings is elite, and gives me comfort. Of course, he could have his own freak accident at any time.
Honestly, I guess I haven't been following Lohse enough to be comfortable picking Lohse vs Arroyo. Of course, I'm naturally going to be a little biased towards the guy I know better and have been rooting for.
If I was the GM (or even playing a computer game), I'm not sure who I'd pick.
I think it's a close call.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
