The Unofficial Bronson Arroyo Bandwagon

Postby valnas » Wed Apr 26, 2006 5:28 pm

Just wow. Anyone else who picked him up this year, pat yourself on the back after today. Here's the line so far

OPP Dec IP H ER BB K
CHC W 6.2 6 3 0 7
@ CHC W 7.0 6 0 0 4
@ STL ND 5.0 6 5 3 3
@ MIL W 8.0 6 1 2 8
@ WAS W 8.0 1 0 2 8

4-0, 34.2 IP, .92 WHIP, 2.34 ERA, 7.9 K/9

If thats not a shot in the arm from your number 5 starter I don't know what is. Not to mention most people probably benched him in St. Louis. Keep it going Bronson !!!! (and keep getting road starts, your home park is gonna kill ya).

You would think so. If the NL is that lame that it makes Arroyo into an Ace, then I would like to know what is wrong with Mulder and Hudson.

He hasn't faced the strongest offenses, but I don't think it is only the fact that the NL is weaker this year than in the past. I think he has matured as a pitcher. He is 29, has three years of starts under his belt, had a good K rate in 2004, had decent minor league numbers. His slider looks pretty unhittable, and I think it took the Red Sox trading him (which he was pretty pissed about) to get him to wake up and realize how good he is.

We'll see at the end of the year, but I think I might have picked up another winner this year (last year I picked up John Patterson).

Well, he pitched against the Cards (didn't do to hot), but the Cubs and Brewers have 2 pretty good offenses and aside from the Was win all the parks he's pitched in are hitters parks. Not saying that this will continue like this but his performances have been legit.
