    The most important thing about this win is, despite the so-called weaker NL hitting (must be the "lack of a DH" thing), he had Albert Pujols hitless. This was the highly-rated Cards and he held the top NL hitter hitless. That's gotta be great.

      True, but for all my "I told you so," it is still worth mentioning that Pujols has been bothered by a stiff back lately. I have a feeling that the next time these two square off, it will be a different Pujols that he faces. I still think Arroyo can contain the Cards as a team, though.

        Hmmmmmmmmmm, haven't heard about the bad back thing. Could be reasonable that if he's hurting, then he'd have an "oh-fer" game (he was 0-for-3). I'll accept that.

        I remember hearing about one of Nolan Ryan's 7 no-hitters, McGwire and Canseco were out of the A's lineup. I think it was Jim Edmonds that had gotten 2 hits.

        Still, Arroyo's doing something impressive, far more than a #5 pitcher now. I remember a few years ago, the Reds traded Scott Sauerbeck to Boston, as he was a lefty specilaist. I think they were having a fire sale back then or something, but Boston and Cincy have traded before.

        As to what the Reds will do with Arroyo--keep him or trade him--if they are trading him, he could be a hot commodity, like a poor man's Dontrelle Willis, I would think.

          Yeah, I know.
