Redlegs Rundown

Monday Morning Rant

I want Bronson Arroyo GONE!!  I've said this before and I'm going to say it about a thousand more times before he and his guitar are shipped out of town.

The Reds are paying him $9.5 million this year to go 8-8 with a 5.85 ERA.  That's bad enough.  What's worse is they are going to pay him even more next year to do the EXACT same thing.  Up and down like a freakin roller coaster!  For a guy who is 79-78 in his career.  Look it up. 

Walt, I beg of you...PLEASE TRADE BRONSON ARROYO!!! 

So what he gives you 200+ innings.  At an ERA of 5.85 what is the use???  Get rid of the stinking contract!  Get nothing in return!  At least get rid of the contract. 

Yeah, he'll come back and throw a 4-hit shutout....then return to Bronson Arroyo form and go 1+ giving up 10 hits and 9 runs.  What's the sense in that?  If you want to pay him $2 million for that, I'm fine.  NOT $9.5 MILLION!!!

He stinks out loud and is doing absolutely NOTHING for this team. 

Time to go, Bronson!!!
