Bronson Arroyo Was About As Pretty OK, I Guess, As Anyone Ever

Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Bronson Arroyo announced on Monday that he will be undergoing Tommy John surgery to repair the torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. The news that a 37-year-old pitcher who has never really warranted a descriptor any more generous than "OK" is out for the foreseeable future… » 7/08/14 2:11pm 7/08/14 2:11pm

Un-Rubbed Balls Create Sticky Situation For Cardinals

John Smoltz thinks the reason he got roughed up last night is because his balls were not properly rubbed down. Yet, opposing pitcher Bronson Arroyo threw just fine. Is it because he was rubbing something special on his own balls? » 10/01/09 10:50am 10/01/09 10:50am

Bronson Arroyo Will Put Just About Anything In His Body

Bronson Arroyo admits that he pumps his body full off all manner of unapproved chemicals and that MLB drug tests don't really concern him. And what about a hardcore steroid user like Manny Ramirez? If he dies, he dies. » 8/13/09 11:25am 8/13/09 11:25am

Peter Gammons Rocking Out The Mitchell Report Blues

We'll get into Roger Clemens more a little bit later — because we know you can just never get enough Roger Clemens and steroids talk, obviously — but we wanted to take a moment to salute Peter Gammons, everyone's favorite Andrew Jackson-impersonating, hard-rockin' baseball reporter. » 1/08/08 1:35pm 1/08/08 1:35pm

Your Hollywood Minute

There's crazy, and then there's that special brand of crazy that is Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo. What would you do if you were a major league pitcher going for your 10th win of the season, as Arroyo will be doing on Thursday? Why, you'd dedicate the win to actress Bo Derek, naturally. Because she was in the movie "10," » 8/07/06 1:45pm 8/07/06 1:45pm

Bronson Arroyo, Rockin' Pitchman

Initially, though we were happy about the Bronson Arroyo to Cincinnati trade, we worried that the harsh transition to "rollicking Boston nightlife" to "downtown closes at midnight" would cause some trouble for the rocking righthander. Clearly, though, it's all worked out well, so much so that now he's making some … » 5/26/06 11:45am 5/26/06 11:45am

When The Visiting Team Is The Home Team

As we mentioned yesterday, we skipped the Red Sox-Yankees histrionics to see the Reds and Cardinals play in Cincinnati ... and for a Cardinals fan, it was pretty miserable. Bronson Arroyo continued to forget he's Bronson Arroyo — hasn't anybody in Cincinnati distracted him with a groupie yet? — and the Cardinals went… » 5/02/06 11:30am 5/02/06 11:30am

Arroyo Ready To Take Cincinnati By Storm

After an brutal spring so far — OK, he didn't really get rocked by a Little League team — rockin' righthander Bronson Arroyo was traded this morning to the Cincinnati Reds for outfielder Wily Mo Pena. We support this trade, for three major reasons. » 3/20/06 2:00pm 3/20/06 2:00pm

When Bronson Arroyo's Rock Isn't Hard Enough

MTV channels its inner Page 3 today, looking at the worst music offerings from professional athletes. (We're going to assume "ESPN Hollywood" has done this story about six times.) » 9/27/05 3:39pm 9/27/05 3:39pm

Roger Clemens And His Funny Shirts

More Webshot findings from the ladies of On The DL, and though none are quite as damning as the married Brandon Arroyo housing poor college students on his lap, there's still some pretty fun stuff. Not least of which are creative shirt designs from Phillies outfielder Pat Burrell (whom this blind item is definitely… » 9/26/05 12:51pm 9/26/05 12:51pm

Bronson Arroyo: Now Officially A Rock Star

We were going to reveal the final of our three blind items today, but those crazy ladies at On The DL have something even better for today, so we're gonna hold off. They've put together a compendium of photos online of baseball players boozing and tarting it up with various "fans" across the country. Included are… » 9/20/05 12:56pm 9/20/05 12:56pm

Red Sox Dial Down Arroyo

After some legitimate complaints about his off-field pursuits, Red Sox pitcher/archaic grunge rocker Bronson Arroyo might be the most important pitcher the team has right now. So apparently the Red Sox themselves have tired of all the rocking, asking him to cut down on the music until, you know, we find out whether… » 9/02/05 12:24pm 9/02/05 12:24pm
