Hmmm, I agree with forfreelin. Harang just turned 27 in May... young for a pitcher. In five more years, he'll still only be 32.
How many good pitchers continue to be productive beyond that ? Quite a few actually.
Aaron Harang could be helping the Reds out for a long time if he continues to do well.
