    Bronson Arroyo agrees to two-year contract extension

    Per Reds.Com -it's true.

    Bronson Arroyo agrees to two-year contract extension

    CINCINNATI -- The Cincinnati Reds and All-Star RHP Bronson Arroyo have agreed to terms on a 2-year contract extension through the 2010 season with a club option for 2011.

    On Tuesday, the Reds and RHP Aaron Harang avoided arbitration by agreeing to a 4-year contract through the 2010 season with a club option for 2011. Last season, Arroyo and Harang became the first duo in Reds history to produce at least 200 innings and 184 strikeouts each. They tied for the Major League lead in starts (35), while Arroyo ranked first in the majors in innings pitched (240.2) and Harang finished third in the National League in that category (234.1).

    Arroyo, 30, last season was a National League All-Star and was voted by the Cincinnati chapter of the Baseball Writers' Association of America the winner of both the Johnny Vander Meer Award as the club's Most Outstanding Pitcher and the Joe Nuxhall Good Guy Award. He led the Major Leagues in innings pitched (240.2) and ranked among the NL pitching leaders in starts (35, T1st), wins (14, T12th), ERA (3.29, 4th), complete games (3, T5th), strikeouts (184, T6th) and opponents' batting average (.243, 8th).

    In each of the last 3 seasons Arroyo established career highs in starts, innings pitched and quality starts, and in each of the last 2 seasons he recorded 14 victories and at least 200 innings. On January 19 of last year, while with Boston, he avoided arbitration by signing a 3-year contract through the 2008 season. On March 20 he was acquired from the Red Sox in exchange for OF Wily Mo Pena and cash.

    As I said in the other forum, I'm not sure now is the right time to give him an extention but it does put an end to the "he'll leave for Boston as soon as he can" talk.

    Depends on the money... but if it's a similar deal to Harang's, we should all feel pretty good about our chances over the next few years.

    I wonder when Krivsky is going to do something to solidify this team? I mean, we traded Kearns and Lopez away and...oh nevermind!

    Krivsky was cited as being a superb contract GM.

    Looks like he plus a willing front office is changing the Reds recent history.

    Pending the dollars involved, I love this move. I think these guys feed off of each other. It's been a long time since we've had this type of tandem.

    Money might be scary as he would be stupid to sign for anything that would be considered a "bargain" after this off-season.

    Be afraid...be very afraid.

    If money is right, I'll be happy. But I'm expecting a fall back to Earth this year for BA, so this might have been a better move after this season IMO.

    Again, it all depends on the money.

    Buying F.A. years is a lot more expensive than buying arbitration years. I'm expecting $12-15M per in those two years.

    Re: Bronson Arroyo agrees to two-year contract extension

    My initial reaction - without knowing the money - is this is a very solid move. Remember, he's locked up for 2007 and 2008 anyway for a very attractive deal so it wouldn't surprise me if Bronson is getting "paid" a bit in the extension.

    Unless it's a ridiculous amount of money though, which I don't think it will be, I'll definitely like it.

    That's what I am scared of. That's a lot of money...and probably too much.

    Wow, didn't see this one coming. Glad to see we are getting rid of the going back to Boston talk though.

    Re: Bronson Arroyo agrees to two-year contract extension

    I worry about Bronson breaking down before Harang, though. Harang's got a sturdier frame. Having said that, with contracts like Milton, and Griffey coming off the books in the future, it makes sense to lock both Harang and Arroyo into contracts. That way, you've got a foundation with which to build. You know Homer isn't far away. That's 3. That leaves two spots that you need someone to either fall into your lap, or come up through the system in the next 3 years. I like those odds better than trying to find 4 starters.

    Re: Bronson Arroyo agrees to two-year contract extension

    I think locking him up does the same thing that locking up Harang does...it makes him even more attractive on the trade market.

    Look what we have here...Arroyo, Harang and the promise that Bailey offers through 2010...WOW! Talk about a filthy 1 - 2 - 3...WOW!!!
