    Reds placed Arroyo on trade waivers yesterday

    http://www.boston.com/sports/basebal..._do_the_waive/

    The Reds put Arroyo on trade waivers yesterday. He would appear to be a starter that would interest both New York and Boston and perhaps a bigger-market NL team like the Dodgers. The Giants, who are below the Dodgers in the standings, could claim Arroyo just to ensure that Los Angeles doesn’t land him. But the Giants would run the risk of winding up with Arroyo, who is owed a pro-rated portion of the $9.5 million he makes the rest of this season, plus $11 million in 2010, and then there’s an $11 million option for 2011 with a $2 million buyout.

    Big deal. Everyone goes on waivers this time of year.

    Why is Boston so obsessed with Bronson still?

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    He's the best guitar player in the league? I mean, now that Bernie Williams is retired anyway.

    If somebody claims he or Harang, I'd let them walk.

    I wonder now if either Arroyo or Harang is going to be traded. Not because they can't be, but because next year's rotation is totally threadbare. And we know that this team is not going to compete for FA pitchers in the offseason.

    We know nothing of the sort.

    This guy Rich Harden pitching tonight for the Cubs. I could easily see the Reds signing him at a lower salary than Arroyo.

    They will trade Arroyo if they can and try to sign a better pitcher at recessionary prices.

    This team is at payroll ceiling *even if* they get rid of Arroyo. Lots of folks getting raises.

    Sheer speculation. Not buying it.

    Maybe. But I'd love to know the last time the Reds went toe to toe with other teams to sign FAs that would certainly help. (No, I'm not talking about leftovers that everyone avoided like Milton).

    This team isn't signing any starter FAs.
