I meant to bring this up right after the game, but I was distracted by the Cubs throwing the baseball all over the diamond. Fortunately the Sun Deck thread reminded me of this.
What's everyone's take on the word the announcers gave from Jocketty that they were in discussions with Arroyo about an extension?
I've mixed emotions. On one hand, I think he's earned it. On the other hand, I worry about committing too much money to him over too many seasons. If he's willing to take a pay cut in favor of 2-3 seasons, perhaps it's a good idea. I just don't want to see the Reds hand-cuffed going forward.
Thoughts on this? If they do re-sign him to an extension, as opposed to just flat picking up his option, I would think this means one of the SPs will be traded this offseason.
