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.
actually what is amazing is how sad some of your lifes are. i really feel for you guys who cant ever be happy. and no, i wasnt happy when we got milton and yes i am happy today. we traded our WORST young player for a cheap good no. 3 starter. we cant get anymore than that for wily no defense pena. face it. when we bring homer up and get another pitcher and arroyo is our no.3/no.4 pitcher at 3.8 mill, i bet you guys arent whining anymore
