    I would take anything for Arroyo right now. Arroyo's record should be 3-12 the way he's pitched.

    Perhaps with this offense but he's had quality or better starts in half or more of his games. The other half not so good to reprehensible.

    Even in his "quality" starts, he's been doing it with mirrors....always a pitch away from disaster.

    He's gutsy, and a very savvy veteran, and has been pounded all year.

    The pendulum will swing the other way, and he start losing every game he pitches. I'd like to get rid of him now while there's at least the semblance that he can pitch effectively for someone.

    Of course, I said the same thing at this time last season, and Arroyo turned it around and pitched very effectively the second half. If I was selling, I'd use that as a selling point when trying to obtain a player for him.

    Ideally, I'd like us to get a minor league left-handed pitcher for him, someone similar to Trevor Reckling of the Angels organization, an 8th Round pick in the 2007 draft. Last Dec 2nd, he was the #4 BA prospect in the Angels organization. Don't know where he ranks now, but that's the type of player I'd go after for Arroyo.

    He's always done it with mirrors if the alternative is great stuff. He's one who gets by as much on guile as anything, always has. By the end of the year he'll most likely be just what he is every year, a solid #3-#4 pitcher. Of course I wouldn't necc. argue against dealing him but if anyone fits the title "he is what he is" it's Arroyo.
