    As disgusted as I have been

    with WK over the winter and for trading way too much for the MRPs last summer, I sure like the extentions of our starting pitchers!! Shows me they are serious about bringing the Reds back to the top!!

    Absolutely. The Reds are showing they mean business.

    It shows me that the FO knows a bargain when it jumps up and bites them. Now the trick is to be able to detect a bargain when nobody else does.

    While i understand JoJo's thought's on the other thread about Harang more tradeable, I was thinking about that later.
    Can you see Bailey if he really takes off and then after a few years, the reds
    say "Homer ...how about a good LTC with a hometown discount for the team that drafted you"?
    Homer: " why....so you can trade me shortly thereafter like you did Harang a few years ago?"

    I think the Harang signing showed the team is serious and I figured it may have an impact on future signings. Didnt know the impact would come this quickly but to Wayne and Bronson and I say ........ST is right around the corner !

    They have done this in the past.

    Brandon Phillips
    Scott Hatteberg
    David Ross
    Arroyo for Pena

    Although I'm worried about them taking Hatteberg an extra year with his option.

    Those four last year were some of the best bargains of the entire league. Give WK some credit.

    Stanton, Meadows, Crosby, Connine, Moeller all haven't been on the Reds for 1 spring training game yet.

    None of those guys listed have been brought in to be a big part of the team other than Loshe and Stanton. I will take that success rate 7 days a week. Everyone makes waiver claims or DFA trades like the Reds do, and none panned out as well as the Reds did. I'm not even a big WK fan, but I have to support him on these moves so far.
