    Pena traded for Arroyo

    Pena is a Red Sox. Arroyo is now a Red. It's official.

    Turned out to be a pretty solid move for Kriv.

    And what would an Eric Milton have gotten in this current FA market?

    Sorry. Didn't see that before I edited my post.

    But as for the trade - I finally got one right!

    I think the hold-up with Milton this offseason is that he's coming back from surgery. If he shows himself to be healthy, I think can be moved.

    I'm pretty sure Brooklynredz is a reliable early source on these types of things, just for future reference.

    Re: Pena traded for Arroyo

    Just what we need--another flyball pitcher with low K totals. Everything about him sreams "average" to me--no complete games, average BB totals, low K totals, etc. He was able to keep the ball in the park significantly more than, say, Milton--and he pitched in a hitter's park, too, so that much is encouraging.

    On the flipside, while I don't think Arroyo is this team's answer for its pitching needs, I think people have a serious tendency to overvalue WMP. He's got all the raw talent in the world, but unrefined talent is worthless. While i would have rather seen the reds get more of a groundball pitcher--or one with a higher K rate--a pitcher in the neighborhood of Arroyo is about where WMP's value currently sits.

    At least the Reds answered one of their question marks in the rotation--and this perhaps also opens the possibility of Milton moving to the bullpen if he continues to remain ineffective as a starter.
    We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

    Wasn't so much questioning Brooklyn, just didn't see it anywhere.

    Re: Pena traded for Arroyo

    Ugh. Not only do we get a 4.5 ERA pitcher, which is moderately better than what we had (though that IS in the AL), but the offense takes a BIG hit with Hatteberg a full-time starter now. I don't see them letting Denorfia start, so the whole Dunn to 1st was a sham? What gives?

    Or was the FO all of a sudden terrified that they only have two major league starters in the rotation?!?
