    I felt like going outside and doing snow angels in excitement, until I realized it's 10 degrees.

    Great deal. Great, great deal. Aaron must love it here, because I see no logical way he should be making less than Ted Lilly and Gil Meche.

    Well, as everybody has said, fantastic deal. Nice contract, VERY reasonable amount of money.

    Glad to see they got it done.

    The presser is over and done with. It started around 2:05 and was over with by 2:15. Harang was at the presser with Krivsky and Cast, and Harang's wife was also seated in the room. They made a few mentions of making it a quick one since apparently Harang and his wife need to get home in California to their newborn baby. They weren't sure how quickly they'd be able to get from GABP to the airport with the weather situation.

    As for the presser itself, much of it was the pretty standard organizational speak in the "We're glad to have Harang signed for the next four to five years" type of mold. Harang stated that he and his wife really like Cincinnati and that they're glad they're going to be here for awhile.

    The most interesting bit of the press conference was Krivsky mentioning one piece of information Harang's agent was going to use in an arbitration hearing should a hearing have happened. That piece of info was that Harang in 2006 was one of a select few pitchers to lead the National League in wins and strikeouts. Some of the other names on that list that Krivsky dropped were Koufax, Carlton, Drysdale, Seaver, Johnson, and Gooden. It was also the first time a Reds pitcher had accomplished the feat since Ewell Blackwell in 1947.

    Good news indeed, although expected. The sooner, the better.

    I hope this doesn't trigger the Gods to subsequently cast down the inevitable arm injury on him.

    I hope he uses the signing bonus on plastic surgery.

    First, we get sent home from work 3 hours early due to the weather.

    Then I log on and see this news.

    Wonderful day so far (though I'm sure I'll pay for it at work tomorrow)

    Good move Redlegs.
    With the 6-7 year contracts being thrown around to top-flight pitchers, getting Harang at 4 years (+1 option) is a fantastic deal for the ballclub. The dollars are practically bargain-rate when you look at the other deals that've been made and factor natural inflation into the coming years.

    I can't say enough good things about what the Reds did today. They did what successful teams in the majors (minus Florida) have to do -- they kept their own top-quality pitching at home. Moving in the FA market is so expensive that you simply have to keep reliable pitching around when you find it.

    Bravo Wayne.

    Harang/Arroyo combo is good for two more seasons untill Bronson's contract is up. I like.

    Re: Reds Sign Harang to 4-year Deal

    We now have the following CORE players locked up through 2010 at least:

    Harang
    Bailey
    Votto
    Encarnacion
    Dunn
    Bruce

    The next player I wouldn't mind seeing getting locked up for the long term (but not until the AS break at the earliest) would be Brandon Phillips, provided he can produce at the same level he did last year. I doubt Bronson Arroyo would be willing take ANY kind of discount to stay here, given the disdain he has expressed with the National League and the Midwest specifically.
    Go BLUE!!!
