Alot of people, including me, have Arroyo becoming a free agent in 2014.
He has pitched way beyond most people's expectations this season, with 6 quality starts in a row, and the Reds with a win tonight will be 10-2 in his last 12 starts. When healthy in 4 of the last 5 seasons, he's posted a sub-4.00 e.r.a. and a winning record.
If he repeats his 2012 season in 2013, do the Reds consider re-signing him?
I know part of it depends on who the Reds have to replace him. But could this be a situation where Arroyo ends up career in Cincinnati? His pitching style is a Jamie Moyer type of change of pace over Cueto, Latos, Bailey's fastball-lead styles. Obviously, it would depend on the overall payroll too.
