I still keep thinking another shoe is going to drop with Bronson Arroyo. But it's mid-September. He's had a great season. When you hear him talk about his approach - about adding a back-door sinker to combat his platoon splits - you realize why 2011 was an aberration. Bronson could still fall off a cliff as early as next year, but it's important to keep in mind that he really is the quintessential crafty veteran righty. I no longer want to call him a junk-baller. "Funk-baller" doesn't work great either.

His mound-mate is a pitcher just getting his career started. And also one of the best pitching prospects in baseball heading into 2012. He came over from Detroit for Anibal Sanchez and Omar Infante. In baseball, talent flows the other way - from the sun belt to the rust belt.

Reds are in a good position to rest the top-end of the bullpen, though Redmond -for one - might be set aside as a spacer for the starting rotation.
