They could have fetched a huge haul now.
If Harang had refused the LTC offer, Krivsky would have done well to shop him. But that's moot now.
If Arroyo doesn't re-up prior to next season, Krivsky should deal him prior to 2008 spring training. He'd bring back a nice haul of ML-ready talent and prospects.
