    Neither do I but I would venture that Harang has the most value out of any reds player. He has a proven track record (leading the NL in wins and k's last year) and is locked up in a very friendly contract for the next 4-5 years. If they trade Harang (which I think may be one of the dumbest moves the franchise could make) they need to take the cake on any return. The reds havn't had a pitcher as good as Harang since probably Soto and I cant remember the last time they had a combo with as much potential as Harang and Bailey.

    I agree. Harang is supposed to have flawless mechanics. He is signed long term and should be very durable. You trade that away and you are nuts.

    I agree about Harang. But catchers who can do this: .317/.373/.526, while being locked up for several years (currently making $3M) are rarer than Harang. His defense, which has always been a knock against him, is improving too as he's dedicated himself to getting better.

    Thanks for the feedback.. The problem I see with the Reds is that Harang is the only player we have that will bring back a boatload of nice young players.
    Dunn should bring back nice a return, but not enough to revitalize the team.

    I also think the Reds might have to target players like Sowers, Marte, etc who have had great minor league success, yet have stumbled in the big leagues. One of the young pitchers in the Indians rotation, Carmona, struggled a lot at first, but now has put it together. Last year, it didn't look like he'd amount to much. Heck, Harang didn't burst on to the ML scene with a bang either. The problem is that no team will trade away a "Can't miss" guy like Homer, Hughes, unless his luster fades a little bit. Heck, last year, Sowers was pitching great, and there was no way he'd be available.

    In any event, we've got a big mess. I'd be open to trading Harang in the right deal, because I doubt we are going to be a decent team any time soon.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for bringing winning baseball back to Cincy -- it was nice while it lasted..
