ERA, perception, scouting, and almost every counting statistic in baseball pegs Arroyo as an above average starter.
Except that isn't accurate. His FIP is a composite of his peripherals....how could they scream he's all that but not lead to a FIP that was?

Perception? His '06 was an outlier and he really, really liked the Reds defense last season.
