    Bravo! Looks like the biggest bang for the buck deal of this crazy off-season. Hope he holds up okay.

    And there was much rejoicing in Redsland.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Can't see anything wrong with this move. Nice contract.

    Now...I wonder if they can they convice Arroyo to stay around (not likely).

    So up to 5 years at a little more than $7 million per. Fantastic!

    This is a great move by Krivsky.

    Wow -- this is a stellar deal! Best signing I can remember in recent Reds history.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Not only is this by far the best move by the Reds this offseason, it's the best move Krivsky's made here in around 10 months and arguably the best move he's ever made here.

    It's excellent money relative to the market, not a bad contract length at all, and I've actually had Harang pegged down with putting up a monster year or three throughout his prime.

    My reading of this is the buyout of th 5 year is only what is included in the $36.5 and not the whole 5th year. So it is 4 plus buyout for 36.5. Lets say the buyout is $1.5 then it is 4 for 35 plus the 1.5. Given the market 4 for 34 or 35 is very reasonable.

    Totally agree.

    I've said all offseason that Harang's LTC was the most important signing the Reds could make.

    Bravo Wayne.

    I don't think so, it depends how much the option and buyout are for the 5th year. If they wind up buying it out, it's more like a little over $9M a year for 4 years, if they pick it up, it'll probably wind up being in the 5 years, $50M-ish neighborhood. Still a very good deal, just not ridiculously team favorable that a $7M per year deal would be.

    I will admit that a 4-yr deal for a pitcher is a little risky.

    But, I'll take this deal. And twice on Sunday.

    Good move Redlegs.

    OK. I thought the $36.5 million included the 5th year option, not just the buyout.

    It's under $10 million per year, so it's still a good deal.
