The Pulse: Bronson Arroyo will win his share of games

Every day, we at ask our readers a question. It’s the Sanderson Ford Poll Question of the Day, and it can be found midway down the right side of our home page.

From Wednesday to Thursday, we asked how many wins new pitcher Bronson Arroyo will earn this season.

And with 624 votes submitted, it looks like fans think the veteran is in for a solid season.

A total of 319 votes — or 51 percent — said the 37-year-old will win between 11 and 15 games, with 196 votes being submitted for a total between six and 10.

Forty-six people are pretty optimistic, saying the former Cincinnati Red will win between 16 and 20 games, while 19 folks must be incredibly excited for the signing, because they think Arroyo will win more than 20 games.

The good news, perhaps, is no one really expects this signing to backfire on the D-backs, as just 44 votes — for 7 percent — went to a win total between zero and five.

A veteran of 14 Major League seasons, Arroyo has averaged 13 wins along with a 4.19 ERA with the Pittsburgh Pirates, Boston Red Sox and Cincinnati Reds.
