I keep hearing rumors that Bronson Arroyo is about to be traded to Philly for Shane Victorino. Now, I don’t have any strong opposition to trading Arroyo, but Victorino? He just isn’t very good. Don’t the Reds have enough below-average players already?
He’s fast, though! And we know that Dusty Baker loves fast guys!
In the end, however, I can’t see how this trade ever gets made. Makes no sense.
Blame Chad for creating this mess.
