Certainly not contempt, but perhaps more patience at the plate, or better timing. What was that about "second time around the league" again?*
*And I don’t mean this as an unfair swipe at Arroyo (who I liked), or a denial of the fact that a guy like him might be helpful to the Sox right now (he would). This is more to point out that trades, particularly a trade like the Pena/Bronson one, take a good deal of time to assess. It wasn’t a deadline deal done to achieve an express purpose, but rather a pre-season move done for long-term goals. We should keep that in mind as we lament the current Sox’ pitching woes.
