Harang spryly throws out the runner.
(Again sending mental telepathy to Krivsky: 3 years, $14 million. Get it done, Wayne.)
I'd actually prefer that Krivsky prioritize something like this right now, and worry about trading for another starter in June or July depending on how things are going. (I just think that the trade cost for a starter that'll actually help might be higher now than it would be in, say, late June--too many teams are still in the race and not wanting to deal pitching just yet.)
In the meantime, if Harang puts together a couple more months at his current pace, the opportunity to sign him to this kind of a three-year deal may pass us by...
