How many more starts for Arroyo?

Page 2 of Guy is giving it all he has but the number of starts left in his career is probably in the single digits. Reds rotation is a disaster and they have no ... 27 comments | 1221 Views | Go to page 1 →

    He might change his mind after a year or two of being retired. He's a different guy so who knows.

    Got a feeling Sunday against the Dodgers might be it for Bronson.

    Yeah I'm thinking this is it. That's a wrap.

    Sounds as though he is done.

    He will finish the season with a 3-6 record and a 7.35 ERA. I hope the Reds have a Bronson night sometime later in the year so the fans can show their appreciation for all the games he won as a Red.

    Will likely be a Reds HOFer.

    Is he a Reds HOF'er?? 108-100 career record with the Reds. Well outside the top 10 in wins. Never won a major award. Great guy, but really not much more than a slightly above average pitcher.

    7th all time in starts for the Reds. One ahead of Nuxhall. Not sure if he would get in on starts alone.

    I realize the bar is much lower for team HOF's. I really expected Arroyo's numbers to be much better than they are, and I know wins can be an overrated stat. But his average season was 12-10. Very middle of the road.

    I would not protest if he makes the Reds HOF eventually but his numbers are more towards the longevity end and not the production end like even Freddie Norman (85-64 with 3.43 ERA) or even Mike Leake (62-47 3.87 ERA).

    I've always liked Bronson. I never will forget him jumping around in his cornrows after the Red Sox won the 2004 series.
