    I've been real happy with Harang as well but I have to echo Indyreds opinion here. Don't sign pitchers longer than 3 years. If he still rockin in 3 years, extend it. This club can't afford another 5 or 6 year ablatross if Harang's arm goes to the pooper.

    The reason I said 4 years for Harang is that he has a great frame, a great delivery, and would be 27-31 years old for the duration of the contract. If a pitcher is worth 4 or 5 years it would be this type of pitcher. However, I totally understand your unwillingness to go past 3 years with a pitcher.

    How much longer do the Reds own his rights? Unless the Reds can sign him for a fair price I say keep doing the one year thing until he is in the last year before free agency then we try to sign him longterm if he is still pitching well.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.
