Some of you amaze me. Reds make no moves for pitching? You complain. They try and get some pitching? You complain. The Reds aren't going to spend $20+ million a year to sign the latest free agents like the Yankees, pitching will have to be developed or traded for, just the way it is.
What amazes me is how some of you think ANY pitching is an improvement. Were you also the people who supported the Milton signing last season? Uh-huh. And how did that turn out?
Do any of you still like the Dave Williams deal?
The issue is that the Reds need to target GOOD pitchers, not junkballers like Arroyo.
The last thing the Reds need is a flyball pitcher who can't strike batters out. That's exactly what Arroyo was last season.
His ridiculous dropoff in K rate from 2004 to 2005 indicates something is extremely wrong with him. If it is fixable, I doubt the Red Sox would be so willing to part with him.
