Exactly what Hybrid said. Arroyo is not that good.

A half a season of low BABIP does not a good pitcher make.

I'm not sure what is wrong with him that he is doing so poorly, but expectations shouldn't have been that high to begin with.

Yeah, I had to check the WW to see his stats, I wasn't suprised. I don't even understand people asking this early "what's wrong with insert studs name" but asking what's wrong with an at best #5 SP? Wait a minute, I fell for it, good one.

I'm sure some people out hope for 2006-type stats.

Or even a more consistent 2007. Bronson Arroyo had more quality starts last year than Aaron Harang and as many as Brandon Webb. Something to scratch your head at, anyway.
