Bronson Arroyo is looking… good?

Awful MLB Fan Cave commercial aside, Bronson Arroyo‘s postseason is off to a great start, as he’s shut the Giants down for three innings with the Reds on top 1-0 in Game 2 of the NLDS.

A Ryan Ludwick homer off Madison Bumgarner has accounted for the only run.

Making Arroyo his No. 2 starter seemed to be the weak link in Dusty Baker’s postseason master plan, but Arroyo has the curve working tonight and has retired all nine hitters he’s faced. He’s already lowered his career postseason ERA from 6.04 to 5.33.

It’s just Arroyo’s second postseason start in his seven years with the Reds. He made two starts and eight relief appearances with the Red Sox previously.

    As a Reds fan, “Arroyo” and “strikes out the side” are not words that I ever think I have heard in the same sentence.

    If anyone says the “p” word, I’m going to punch them right in the nose!

    If there is one word to describe Bronson Arroyo as a major league player it is, without a doubt, “adequate”.

    6 IP, 1 H… Adequate?

      It was a great start by an adequate pitcher. Yes.

    *tf———– Your name alone shows your aptitude for acting like an adult…so we will explain this slowly. The word for Bronson tonight was A W E S O M E!

    I thought that MLB commercial was pretty good. The quick and intentionally awkward shots of Chapman saying “shabalaba dingdong” were great.
