Bronson Arroyo, a free-agent pitcher who has played for the Cincinnati Reds since 2006, told ESPN.com’s Jerry Crasnick in this lengthy feature about Arroyo that he’s “been fine” with waiting out the free-agency process so far, “but if it’s January 15th and I’m still spinning my wheels, I’ll probably change my tune.”

More from Crasnick’s feature about Arroyo:

Although lots of scouts and evaluators think Arroyo would be better served pitching in the National League than the American, he’s been hardened enough by life in the Great American Park band box in Cincinnati to think he can survive in any venue. He would prefer the East Coast to the West Coast, but that’s not a deal-breaker by any means, and he’s physically fit enough to think he can pitch at least three more seasons, even though he turns 37 in February.

From Arroyo’s vantage point, it’s up to potential suitors to make their move, and then he’ll weigh his options and react. He conveys those sentiments in the type of candid, colorful imagery that Reds beat reporters have come to know and love in his eight seasons with Cincinnati.
