My take as well. I'd rather have Arroyo for next year and trade Harang.
I'm not willing to trade either as a pure salary dump though. We've got to get fair talent in return, otherwise we are simply subtracting talent from the team.
I'm in no big hurry to see Lehr or a Fogg type replace Arroyo or Harang. We're already down a pitcher next year with Volquez out.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
