The Stat Line Of The Night – 08/13/09 – Bronson Arroyo
Total Pro Sports – It seems the last 10 years of baseball have revolved around steroid scandals.Yesterday was no different, as the talk around the MLB was of Bronson Arroyo bragging to a reporter that he loads up his body with supplements. Not the kind that A-Rod and Barry Bonds are fans of, but it drew ire regardless. Its clear that all of the supplements taken by Arroyo are perfectly legal as he states he has passed many drug tests. But I’m not too sure if Arroyo made the right move by coming out to the public and saying these things, as the negative media could force the MLB to relook which supplements should be banned.
But, these supplements must be doing something right as Arroyo, reeling off his comments pitched a gem of a game last night, throwing a complete game shutout, 2 hitter. His effort along with three home runs from Jonny Gomes, skyrocketed them into a 7-0 win over the lowly Nationals. Arroyo had been shaky in his last four starts going 0-3, with one no decidion, and he hadn’t won since beating the Brewers almost a month ago.
One has to wonder weather Bronson put in a call to A-Rod’s cousin, possibly getting the “good stuff”. Because as we all know, in baseball, the stuff from GNC only works for so long.
