    Great move.



    They got it done, as I thought they would.

    Nice work by the front office. I'm not a big fan of pitching deals longer than three years, but Harang's right in the age/durability zone that makes an extra year or two a sensible bet, particularly as a hedge against future pitching inflation. Well done.

    The reality is, it's a great contract for Harang too. This money is not chump change regardless of whatever the market may be. All of these guys are making unbelievable money, period.

    He gets security - rather than playing year by year and getting maximum dollars but risking injury.

    The Reds save money ( assuming he doesn't get hurt ) by giving him the security.

    Also Harang can play relaxed with usually is a plus for a player.

    Also #2 - I don't see Harang as the type to 'mail it in' once he gets the money.
    At the end of the Enquirer's blurb about this was this item:

    He has made 80 consecutive starts without walking more than 3 batters

    I didn't know that, but it's sweet! I want that for a long time!

    Re: Reds Sign Harang to 4-year Deal

    Ted Lilly, Jeff Suppan, Vicente Padilla, and Gil Meche all got contracts paying more than 10 million a year. The Reds just signed the NL leader last season in wins, K's, and complete games for less than that for 4 years. Best signing of the offseason. Does anyone realize that the Reds could possible have the Cy Young award winner next season and the Gold Glove winner at SS and be paying less than 14 million a year for it?

    That's a lot of money, but he was on schedule to make a lot more in the next five years if he tested the free agent market. He has certainly earned it. This potentially gives the Reds 2-3 good starters for the next 4 or 5 years, provided Bailey delivers as advertised. If they can piece together two more in that time, it can be a hell of a staff. Fantastic move by the Reds.

    I thought the presser was going to be on Reds.com? It's 2:30 and no sign of it.
