Re: MLB Rumors 6/16- Reds Players 2
I don't want DanO trading away pitching.
Harang's an honest to goodness, meat and potatoes, middle of the rotation starter.
As good as he seems to us, he's pretty much two nothces above last year's Paul Wilson in the grand scheme of things. He's actually the type pitcher that DanO tried to convince us Paul Wilson was last season. He's the guy who'll take the ball every fifth day and give a club a reasonable shot at winning. He's healthy, he's effective, and he's cheap.
I'm usually all for trading guys away, but hold onto Harang, unless of course, DanO could throw himself into the deal for DePodesta in return.

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