    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.

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

    Bronson Arroyo and cash for WMP.... This maybe puts Arroyo as our #2 behind Harang and marginally above Claussen?

    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!!

    I know pitching is needed, but I don't think I like this. I wonder if Wily Mo had been in spring training the whole time if this would have happend?

    I'm curious what SOSH's take is on the trade.

    I hate being a Reds fan.

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

    Horrible organization.

    Couldn't get a prospect or two for a young slugger in addition to the 29 year old 4.50 ERA pitcher?

    Geesh, not sure about that trade, but I suppose desperate times call for desperate measures.

    Why dont any of you like this? Arroyo is a groundball pitcher and has been pretty decent over the past 2 seasons. WE NEED PITCHING not to mention he is relatively cheap.
