Here's something weird: Bronson Arroyo has had a decision in 16 of his last 17 starts during which he has gone 11-5. His one no decision was his start against the Brewers 11 days ago when David Weathers was kind enough to let CC Sabathia off the hook and take a win away from Arroyo. In that start, Arroyo did a pretty good job of matching Sabathia and only allowed 2 unearned runs over 7 innings pitched. Hopefully he can do the same this afternoon.
Today is fan appreciation day at GABP, so I'm sure the majority of you are at the ballpark trying to win free groceries from Kroger. Let me say though that Rick, Alan, and I (and even JD if he were still here) appreciate all of your participation in this site. We've kinda been playing the string out for the last month or so as both Rick and I have been working on moving and Alan has been busy repopulating the planet. We're planning on picking things back up once we get settled again, probably right after the end of the season. Thanks for sticking with us even though we've essentially been a game thread site for most of this season. We'll try to keep things interesting during the off-season.
