    Very good news. A well deserved contract for Aaron.

    Most of the 'Krivsky bashers' are thrilled at the deal and our only question is: 'What took ya' so long?'

    There. Happy with that Krusty? Sorry to ask for something more than the mediocrity that you find acceptable.

    Fantastic deal. Agree with the sentiments that this is the best move Krivsky has made in a long time.

    Knowing Harang's frame and durability, there's not much of a better bet to keep producing the next 4 years. Plus it's at a very reasonable cost. I'm pleased that Krivsky has shown the willingness to lock up the top players (now Harang and Dunn).

    I am often a Kriv basher but not today. In fact the thing I like about this the most is the extra year that has very little risk for us. This folks could be a 5 year contract. Very good move Wayne. Very good move.

    Great, great news! Best Reds news since Carl announced the sale. FWIW, I can't recall a move that was so unanimously applauded on Redszone in quite some time. Can any RZ historians help me out here?

    Without question very true.

    I was so conditioned by the other "deals" this came as a shock at first.

    Excellent deal by the Reds.

    To repeat what's already been said, this is the best Reds news of this off-season.

    Re: Reds Sign Harang to 4-year Deal

    $36.5 million over four years is a bargain these days! Great news! Harang has improved each season and has shown no propensity for injury thus far. The Reds should have him for the best years of his career.

    Picking up 3 years of Bronson Arroyo at a ridiculously low rate?

    That's the only comparable deal I can see. To echo the sentiments of everyone else, this is an absolutely fantastic move. Very, very nice.

    +1 on the general sentiments here. Great move by the Reds, much thanks to Harang for taking such a reasonable deal, good day all around. Makes me look forward to the coming camp much more than I was 24 hours ago. Solid.

    win win scenario

    Harang and his children and his grandchildren don't have money worries.
    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.
