One of the no-shows at the NL player interviews was Bronson Arroyo, the former Sox pitcher who led the NL players' ballots in votes cast for starting pitchers. Bronson was scheduled to make himself available in about a half an hour. Big Papi mentioned that he'd been out with Arroyo at a party last night, so while the official reason for Bronson's absence was that he was nursing a cold, that elicited a few chuckles around here.
