    I wonder what the reaction is at SOSH?
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    very nice -- the team is building around pitching -- makes a lot of sense, and it's the first time in my lifetime it's been a pitching-first franchise -- wow

    I can live with this. I thought they'd wait until after this season to try to extend him though.

    Color me impressed! I guess Bronson thinks being the "man" in Cincy is better then being one of the "idiots" in Boston. Course the money doesn't hurt either.

    I think Bronson was really more upset about leaving a place he called home rather then just because it was Boston. I think he's found some serious acceptance in Cincy and now feels like it can be his new home. Congrats to WayneK, Bronson, Aaron yesterday, and to all Reds fans looking forward to the hopefully great seasons to come!

    Yeah, I bet Curt Schilling is going to start a thread on it so he can let everyone knows what he thinks about it...

    They'll probably interview him on ESPN.

    I know both Harang and Arroyo wern't free agents when their deals were extended but I give major props to Krivsky. In the past both extentions and fa signings the reds spent foolishly. These two deals are both very good deals and were probably done for under market value.

    I agree. Both of these moves allow them to have piece of mind that they are going to have decent starting pitching at a fixed cost. Because the contracts are reasonable, it allows them to spend money on other parts of the team to shore up weaknesses. They didn't break the bank with these two moves. That's why I think both of these moves are great deals. If they would have overspent retaining both of these guys, I wouldn't have been as happy about them. Things are looking pretty good.

    Re: Arroyo Signs 2-yr Extension

    Given recent SP price trends, Arroyo's and Harang's deals sure seem extremely solid for the Reds organization. I know 4 yrs for apitcher carries a weight of risk, but IMO you don't get the dea like this without some risk, and it's a risk I am glad the Reds took.

    I agree. The vast majority of us never have to face a situation where we build a professional and personal reputation in one community and then, through no choice of our own, have to completely start over. There's bound to be some trepidation at first. But Arroyo has been nothing but good for the city and the franchise since coming over.

    I hate being a jinx, but with Harang, Arroyo and Bailey all locked up into the next decade, there's a championship window starting to crack open here. Solidify the offense, get Milton and Griffey off the books, and we could be on to something.

    In any event, it makes 2007 feel like less a status quo season than an appetizer of what's to come.
