If he does move on to another team, every time he comes back to GABP he should get a 10 minute long standing ovation.
I've gone on record and admitted to mistakes/past errors in judgement on this board before, so I'm going to pat myself on the back and say I was one of the probably 1/3 of forum members who vehemently defended Arroyo following his 2011 season.
It'd be funny to collect some quotes from Oct '11 - Mar '12 and compare them to what's being said now.
Edited to add: I'm not accusing you of anything, Joshua
