Card of the day: Bronson Arroyo

What you see here is a 2000 Topps Bronson Arroyo rookie card (try saying that five times fast).

Fast forward nearly 12 whole years later and the right-hander is still hanging around the league. This is due in large part to his pinpoint accuracy and a massive sweeping curve. In 13 MLB seasons he's compiled 114 wins against 107 losses while posting a respectable 4.26 ERA. He's rebounded nicely thus far in '12 after experience a rocky campaign a year ago (9-12, 5.07 ERA, 1.367 WHIP, 46 HR allowed).

The 35-year old looks to continue his 2012 momentum as he battles the visiting Braves tonight. He'll be tossing out the first pitch at approximately 7:10pm ET.
