Re: Pena traded for Arroyo
I think the $$$ and MLB-readiness of Arroyo came into play as well.
He is signed for a relatively cheap contract that fits with the Reds' fiscal miserliness. And, he can pitch *now* at the MLB level. The Reds don't have to wait for him to mature through the minors.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall
All you have to do is call...
