This evening, while getting her dressed for bed, I broke the news to Celeste about Bronson being shipped to Cincinnati in a trade for Wily Mo Peña. She picked up on how I was feeling and said, "boo hoo hoo."
I know baseball is a business and that Arroyo is considered an average pitcher, but there's just something about the kid that impresses me and while I like the pop Peña is likely to bring to the lineup — especially against the lefties that Trot has traditionally had trouble with — but ... I wish it had been Clemet (or Wells) shipped to the Reds instead of Arroyo. Thanks, Bronson, for some great games and memories, including my first trip to Fenway.
