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....

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.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.
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.

"This isnt stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
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.
