I'm curious to hear what everyone's thoughts are on what the Reds could realistically sign Harang for. I personally think this may be a little bit on the low end, but it seems like the range he could be had for. I could very easily see him inking 18 - 20 million for a 3 year contract, so I wouldn't mind hearing some additional input from others to see if I'm in the right ballpark on my estimations.
Every club is always desperate for good, young starting pitchers. The problem is that these frenzied bidding wars that emerge for free agent pitchers terribly skew the real value of starting pitching to all teams in the league.
I mean, all it takes to nuke the market is another bloated signing from a Kris Benson or an Eric Milt---uhm...never mind
