Kudos to WK and BCast. The prevailing wisdom is to avoid deals longer than three years for pitchers, but in the Reds circumstance its important to keep Harang around. This is a good deal for both sides. A bargain for the Reds and security for Harang. If Harang goes south this should not be a deal to regret. This move had to be made.
This helps me get a little more excited for the season honestly.
I was getting worried.
Plus, Harang's one of my favorite players in all of Baseball, so I'm grinnin' like a Cheshire Cat right now.
That big ugly fella is gonna be around for a pretty long while. I'm diggin' on that big time.

I have come to expect those types of scenarios with the Cardinals and it makes me sick." - Lidspinner
