    Arroyo's streak? Maybe not

    Exert from MLB.com:Arroyo shakes off dizziness, set for Wednesday

    ST. LOUIS -- A day after suffering dizziness, Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo was fine on Tuesday and had no qualms about making his scheduled start on Wednesday against the Cardinals.

    "I felt good all last night, and I feel perfect today," Arroyo said.

    Monday wasn't the first time that Arroyo had issues with feeling dizzy. He's had issues with vertigo and motion sickness in his younger years, including in the Minor Leagues. It's only happened once before during his six seasons with the Reds.

    "In 2006, I woke up one day and felt like I was on a boat, like I was seasick," Arroyo said. "I puked at the park all day, and I wasn't sure it was food poisoning or what. I missed that start, it went away and came back a couple of days later. It's been gone ever since. I woke up yesterday morning and it wasn't nearly that bad. It was mild, but it was hard to focus in on anything without the whole room moving. By the time I got to the park, I was still feeling bad."

    Arroyo was given medication and took a two-hour nap at the ballpark on Monday afternoon. Feeling better, he was able to throw his side bullpen session without issues. The Reds had scratched Triple-A Louisville's Dontrelle Willis from his start that evening just in case Arroyo wouldn't be ready. But Willis was not called up.
    • I was falsely under the impression he had never missed a start.

    I really, really, really like Bronson, but anyone with a brain knows he should have been DL'ed and either Willis or Wood called up to make this start. This is slowly becoming comical...

    In 06 he made 35 starts and pitched 240 innings, both career highs. If he's missed a start, I doubt it was that year.
    FIRE DUSTY Never mind. The man is clearly a genius.
