I don't think Harang was necessarily considered a throw in for the deal, but Valentine was definitely the player Kullman was keying on when he made the trade. At the time, Valentine looked to have the makings of a great closer - and yeah that really backfired. However, Harang was a great pickup in the deal and he just keeps getting better as he goes.
