In my ultra-competitive 13-team Yahoo Plus league I am looking to add a decent starter who ks guys. At this point in the season the pickings are slim and all attempts at trading for a stud have yielded nothing. So, off to the wire...
There sits Bronson with a ghastly ERA of 5.29
and hideous WHIP at 1.61
But I looked at his log and saw two horrid performances and a bad day early. I only took out the two horrid games where he gave up 8 runs in 3.2 innings (Game 5 home v. Houston) and 7 runs in 1.1 innings (Game 7 @ Atlanta).
Bronson Arroyo has an ERA of 3.47 and a WHIP at 1.39. These numbers include that 5 runs in 5.2 innings game in Game #2.
I think he's worth a look, guys, if you need someone just below stud.
