    Seeing as how Arizona has legit playoff aspirations and Arroyo has made nary a start for them, they should have no reason to even consider not starting him on the DL if he's anything less than 100%.
    Agree. I was always of the opinion that Arroyo and the Reds would both have been better off and gotten him healthy and let him make less starts but at full health in 2011.

    The last page and a half of this thread is why I'll be glad when the real games start. Then I can read all this snark in a game thread every day....

    It’s driving me nuts today to tell you the truth. Everybody around here is like no hurry, no hurry, but I’ve got a time clock in my head, and to me, it’s like a time bomb going off if I don’t get this thing right.
    The fact that Arroyo has never missed a start is great and everything, but it's being talked about like not missing a start is Arroyo's goal or way of measuring his value, rather than accepting that he might miss a start or two so he can stay healthy for the rest of the season.

    Re: Bronson Arroyo signed with Arizona Diamondbacks.

    I legitimately feel bad for him. He's in a toxic environment and he's pitching poorly. He deserves to go out better than that. Always was, and always will be, one of my favorite Reds. Here's hoping they at least ship him out at the deadline and he starts pitching better.

    it is still early.. obviously a bad start for him but he can recover from it and still be effective (hope he doesnŽt land in pittsburg one day, heŽll be a cy pitcher )

    Why is it a toxic environment?

    The fanbase is turning on the team, some players are indicating there's a lack of effort, Gibson and Towers seem to be on shaky ground, the owner of the team is stating publicly there's not as much emphasis on statistical analysis as he would like... a whole bunch of things going on out there in Phoenix.

    I read a piece in the AZ paper, Eric Chavez WS flummoxed and said the team was essentially drowning

    A Reds Hall of Famer deserves a better ending than this.

    I'm glad the Reds didn't spend the $ on him, but I hope he rights the ship soon.
