I don't throw the word around lightly, but "moronic" would be a good way to describe not tying Harang down for AT LEAST as long as Arroyo is slated to remain in a Reds uniform.
Agree totally. No way Harang makes less than 5 million next season. It might not be a bad option to sign him long term. 5 mil. 2007, 6.5 mil. 2008, 8.5 mil. 2009, and club option for 2010 for 11 mil.
