“I’ve been saying it for years. It’s like fourth grade and there’s just this big wall between you and the headmaster,” Arroyo said on 700 WLW. “And you don’t know about the guy – you’re just a little scared of him, aren’t you? When he walks across the room. And in baseball there were those shifts where you don’t know … The guys in the locker room know everything about the players. I’m with them every day. And not once in my career did a general manager come up to me and say, “Hey Bronson, let me ask you one question: if I get a man under contract for $ 100 million would you give the money to Johnny Cueto or would you give it to Homer Bailey? “I was never asked that question. I shower with these guys every day. I party with them at night. I play music with them in my hotel room. And me know her very well. And the (General Manager) never asked the question. There is this dividing line between what happens in the locker room and what happens in the front office. And sometimes there is no transparency. “
