REDS PITCHER BRONSON ARROYO WILL NOT MISS HIS NEXT START

"DRUGS ARE GOOD."
REDS PITCHER BRONSON ARROYO WILL NOT MISS HIS NEXT START

It is no secret that Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo takes a daily hand full of supplements and pills to help stabilize his athletic performance. Arroyo has pitched 200+ innings every season for the Reds since 2006 and after Thursday's win against the Cardinals Arroyo is now 53-50 with a 3.97 ERA with the club.

There is no question that androstenedione and amphetamines accomodated Arroyo's success. On several occasions Arroyo has expressed his use of supplements that are not on MLB's approved list and has never demonstrated remorse for his actions. Arroyo has never been on the disabled list, never missed a start, and never failed a drug test.

"I have a lot of guys in here who think Iím out of (my) mind because Iím taking a lot of things not on the (MLB-approved) list," Arroyo says. "I take 10 to 12 different things a day, and on the days I pitch, thereís four more things. Thereís a caffeine drink I take from a company that (former teammate) Curt Schilling introduced me to in Ď05. I take some Korean ginseng and a few other proteins out there that are not certified. But I havenít failed any tests, so I figured Iím good."

Four hours after taking anti-inflammatories to help lingering pain from a line drive he took to the calf on Thursday, Arroyo started to feel much better.

"Drugs are good. I walked out of here yesterday and could barely walk," Arroyo said. "And about four hours later, the anti-inflammatories hit hard. I was feeling pretty good.  It's 80 percent already. I couldn't believe it. I thought I was going to be hobbling in here today. Iíll be fine for Tuesday.Ē

Whether or not you agree with Arroyo's drug diet, it has undoubtedly patronized his accomplishments as a Cincinnati Red. Enjoying his awful music is discretional. Considering his leg kick intimidating is nonobligatory. Admitting that Bronson Arroyo's demeanor is critical to his team's fruition is imperative.

"People can think what they want of me," Arroyo says. "I donít give a f@#K."



Drew Stubbs hit his first career grand slam helping the Reds defeat the Chicago Cubs 5-4 on Friday. Homer Bailey started for the Reds going five innings, allowing three runs on seven hits, and striking out five while walking two. Bailey also hit two batters.

Aaron Harang will face Carlos Zambrano Saturday at 1:10pm.  Last season, Zambrano allowed only six hits to current Reds players (Bruce 2, Dickerson 1, Hernandez 1, Votto 2).
