    Bronson Arroyo signed with Arizona Diamondbacks.

    Am I going blind or has nobody posted this yet? Jayson Stark reported this almost 13 hours ago.

    http://espn.go.com/mlb/blog/_/name/s...medium=twitter

    Sayeth Bronson: "I don't know what to do," Arroyo said. "I'm not trying to break the bank. But I am a guy who's performed for the last 10 years as consistently as anybody in the game. And for some reason, nobody's thrown me an offer yet."

    Sayeth Bronson's agent: STFU, Bronson.
    How, then, are those people of the future—who are taking steroids every day—going to look back on baseball players who used steroids? They're going to look back on them as pioneers. They're going to look back at it and say "So what?" - Bill James, Cooperstown and the 'Roids

    Reds should sign him for a $6M, 2 year deal and move Mike Leake for a LF bat and call it a day.

    What LF bat could Mike Leake reasonably bring?
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    He could probably bring a whole sack of them. Possibly some baseballs too.

    I think you're selling him a bit short.

    He's a 3.45 ERA guy and a ~100 pts of OPS better on the road than he is at GABP, so maybe he has more worth elsewhere than he does here.

    As it is, he's a decent 4 / good 5 guy -- nice to have on your team, but nothing anyone is going to blow you away to acquire.

    I wonder if he means he hasn't received an offer in his ballpark but deals like 2 year 6 mill have come.

    Sign him for another year. Come on BA. You've got unfinished business here in Cincy.

    Re: Bronson Arroyo says he hasn't received a single offer

    He probably was expecting the GM's to act like the women he "dates," and make him an offer when he tells them he's a MLB pitcher. Only the GM's aren't 19, nor drunk.

    •A source with direct knowledge of Bronson Arroyo's negotiations tells MLB Daily Dish's Chris Cotillo (Twitter link) to "don't believe everything you read" in regards to Arroyo's claim that he hasn't received a firm contract offer this winter.

    Is there a backstory to this, or just random hostility?

    No hostility, just joshing about Arroyo's reputation with the ladies.

    Random hostility. Bronson wrongly has a reputation as a womanizing party animal.
    I've met him several times, I work in that industry, and a few friends of mine are good friends with him.
    it's all rumor and hearsay. He's been in my bar several dozen times over the years. I've never seen him drunk, he often doesn't drink at all, and he frequently hangs out without even talking to women.
    I may not be fast, but I sure am slow.
