HHR would like to send out a special congratulations to Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo, who notched his first win of the season in pitching Cincinnati past St. Louis last night in a 4-3 victory.
There's been quite a bit of consternation about Arroyo's start to the season, which to this point has matched Barry Zito's in awfulness nearly pitch-for-pitch.
The Reds hope this is a sign of good things to come, because without Arroyo throwing at least decently, you know Dusty Baker will do all he can to simultaneously wreck the promising careers of Aaron Harang and Johnny Cueto by having them throw 130+ pitches per night from now until September. Or until their arms fall off, which ever comes first (see: Mark Prior, Kerry Wood)
In the meantime, we hope Bronson gets back to making some more rockin' good commercials for local mystery meat producers. Enjoy.
