    I can't really add to anything that's already been said, but this is definitely exciting news. It really speaks more about the commitment of the new ownership than anything else. If this continues, the years to come will be really exciting, especially if Bailey blossoms into a solid SP and the team is determined to keep him in the fold.

    Well, the defensive improvements this offseason are a grand total of one player but I get what you are saying. I'm not convinced the pitching is all that improved for 2007 but I do hope Saarloos, Santos, or EZ step up big and help solidify the rotation. I do really like the extension to Arroyo though.

    I'd say since Rijo and Browning.
    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!

    I guess this answers the question: If the money is right will big names stay in Cinci. Maybe it's time to try to get Man Ram from boston. With Harrang and Arroyo locked up we can afford to deal some pitching prospects.

    I initially went depth chart diving across baseball to see if I could shoot holes in this statement but the more I looked around the more it hit home just how nice (and rare) it is to have two workhorse type guys at the front of the rotation and a highly touted prospect knocking on the door.

    I think the Angels are sitting pretty with Lackey, Santana and Weaver at the top of the rotation.

    Nice. That gives us two legitimate pitchers for the near future with a possible 3rd coming soon enough.

    As M2 already pointed out in the ORG thread, this extends the competitive window out to 2010. This allows them to do the right thing with guys like Bailey and Cueto. No need to rush them.

    Given the recent market Bob and Wayne are looking very competent right now.
    With Homer on the horizon we are solid in 3 of 5. Only need two of the present stockpile of arms to be competitive and we deal the rest. We're having fun now
    and didn't see it coming!

    Bonderman, Verlander, Miller, Zumaya(?) looks nice as well.

    An unexpected move, IMO, but a great one! Wayne is proving himself as a great contract negotiator!

    Re: Arroyo Signs 2-yr Extension

    I believe the window of opportunity for this group has now been clearly defined. Unless something changes, the top of the rotation is set (Arroyo, Harang, Bailey), the bullpen has some young promising arms (Coffey, Bray), the offense has promising youngsters (EdE, BP, DRoss), the minors offer some hope (Votto, Loo and the young OF), and we shed some contracts during this time that give more flexibility (Milton, Jr???). I couldn't be more excited about watching this teams continued evolution.

    Agreed. I like the potential that the Marlins rotation has as well with Josh Johnson, Anibal Sanchez and Scott Olsen all being around 23 yrs old. Funny to think Dontrelle is the wisened old vet at the ripe old age of 25.
