    Trade: Wily Mo to Red Sox

    Per Lance's blog ...

    The Cincinnati Reds today acquired RHP Bronson Arroyo and cash from the Boston Red Sox in exchange for OF Wily Mo Pena.
    Arroyo, 29, went 14-10 with a 4.51 ERA in 35 games (32 starts) for the Red Sox last season. He established career highs in wins (14), starts (32) and innings pitched (205.1) while producing a team-high 20 quality starts.
    Arroyo has appeared in the postseason in each of the last three seasons, including as a member of the 2004 World Champion Boston Red Sox.
    Originally selected by the Pirates in the third round of the June 1995 draft, Arroyo owns a career record of 33-33 with a 4.59 ERA in 126 games (90 starts) with Pittsburgh (2000-02) and Boston (2003-05). http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/player...?playerId=4416

    Pena, 24, batted .248 with 51 HR and 134 RBI in 302 games with the Reds from 2002-05.

    Holy Smokes. R U kidding me?

    I'm not sure how I feel about that.

    At least Arroyo is relatively young and he should be coming into his prime within the next couple of years.
    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    Does this move in any way put Dunn back to the outfield and Hatteberg at first? I'm not sure how much I like this either, Pena is full of potential, but how long do the Reds wait for that? Plus, they do need pitching. I don't think Arroyo is a number one pitcher but he can help.
    ...And this one belongs to the Reds!!

    With having only Claussen and Harang to depend on from what weve seen during spring training this is a great deal......

    I hate being a Reds fan.

    The offense just got worse and the pitching did not improve much at all.

    Horrible organization.

    Krivsky specializes in contracts, and BA has a reasonable one.

    it's not exactly building toward a BRM, but the move's coldly logical for a team that has bats and OFers but not even mediocre pitching

    I give Krivsky an A for courage. Nobody else was brave enough to deal Pena, whose star could shine or nova.

    Offense will score 100-150 less runs this year. Pitching will not improve.

    Hey jmmclain, fire up that Fire Krivsky website!

    exactly. arroyo is cheap and can pitch 200 plus innings, for a player who gives us nothing dif than the players we already have. when arroyo becomes our 4th starter in a year, at his cheap rate and his 10-15 wins, 200ip, we shall see who is whining

    I might go as high as D+ right now, but if Arroyo wins 15 games, then it's a C+/B-
