No, not the way the money is spread out. I forget the breakdown but he makes the least this year, then it climbs from there.
I guess I think it's such a steal because I really believe that even with a slight drop off, Aaron Harang could have stood to make maybe $15 million per in free agency in two years. I guess he likes security, though, can't blame him for that.
edit: dsmith got me too.
