Arroyo in Arizona

Arroyo in Arizona

The deal is official. Bronson Arroyo passed his physical exam yesterday and is now officially a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

The Reds have a very good pitching staff, and extending him another year for $14 million just didn’t make sense. Arroyo met with several teams over the winter months, including the New York Mets and Minnesota Twins, but in the end Arizona was the only team that was seriously interested. He is a dependable starter and will fit in well at the bottom of the D’backs rotation, but still seems a bit pricey for a #4 starter in my opinion.

I attempted to go old-school with the Photoshop “fun card” above. It has a bit of airbrush quality to it, but still uses the real Arizona logo because I couldn’t digitally draw that if my life depended on it. At least not in less than ten minutes, which is all the time I wanted to spend on it.

  1. Always love a 1974 custom, and you did a nice job on it, especially within 10 minutes. Obviously you’re not aware of the Federal law that requires all Arroyo cards to feature his leg kick, but I won’t rat you out.

    Thanks for the link! At some point I plan on doing a follow-up, but I need to find my own 10 minutes.
