Mike Lincoln, while Harang is not what he used to be he is still a solid starter.

Lincoln should consider retiring.

Without a doubt Lincoln. At least the other high priced guys like Harang have some value.

Anybody voting for Harang mind posting your reasoning of him instead of Lincoln, I just don't see it.

Sorry, but it's easily Duhsty Baker.

He makes six times what any of our last 3 Managers made, and he's barely better than any of those three.

Scott Rolen.


JK, Easily Mike Lincoln. Atleast Harang has looked halfway decent in a few outings this season. Kind of suprised he is ahead 5 votes on Lincoln

Lincoln is by far the winner but don't forget were paying Cordero alot of money also. Harang is making alot of money but you have to remember we gave him that contract when he as pitching very very well. I don't think the reds ever could of imagined he would have done so poorly the last 2 years.

Lincoln was pretty good once upon a time, but he's had some bad injuries. Is his contract part of a long-term deal?

This is the last year of a two year deal

2.5 million is pretty much the going rate for a halfway decent righthander. At least you'll be out from under that contract next season.

If you cant develop them from withing and replace as needed once they get too expensive. Heck even during the Jimbo era he could figure out how to bring in good bullpen arms for the cheap so it can be done.

I think a way to free up money even in the winning stages but would make us tons better in the future would be to trade Brandon Phillips out to the Dodgers for George Sherril, James McDonald, and Blake Dewitt. Then u put Blake Dewitt and Chris Valaika at 2nd base while shoring up the bullpen and gettin rid of Mike Lincoln and Carlos Fisher or Nick Masset

I agree stinin' linkin is bad but harang makes a heck of a lot more, 5Xs as much and he is pretty bad himself! You could have 5 stinkin linkins for one horrible harang!

Harang the horrible should be his new nickname!

:cool:

Don't forget to add the 2 million USD buyout to Harang's pricetag.

Harang. Dump him and at least you can fill in with Wood/Volquez/Chapman/leCure. As bad as Lincoln is, he has some value as someone who can eat up innings in a blowout.
