I'm a bit behind today, but just got through about 2 minutes of Mike's open when I was compelled to start blogging. Where does Mike go at the outset of the show today? Well, first a quick dig on the Yanks, than an even quicker mention of Delgado and the Mets with the "these games shouldn't be that close" for the Mets comment. But yes, with that official business aside, time to turn to the real story of the day:
“The Brewers have an enormous game this afternoon. Sabathia vs Bronson Arroyo and I know everyone got on me about Arroyo (everyone = US)...well check it out, Arroyo over his last 5 starts, his ERA is under 2 and he’s 14-10 and his ERA is in the 4’s. So he couldn’t have helped the Yankees this year? He won 14 games so far, 14-10 on a team that’s 15 games under .500. So I think he would have helped this year and he has pitched GREAT of late.”
Who would have thunk it - another Bronson Arroyo mention? And Mike, just to clarify, that ERA is a hell of a lot closer to 5 than it is to 4. And nice job neglecting the 190 hits he has allowed in 173 innings. And the 25 homers allowed. Surely, those numbers would have decreased in the AL...But anyway, let's start the over/under on how many more Arroyo mentions we will have to endure the rest of the season. I'm going with 17...
