    Harang's gotta go

    You was a great pitcher for a number of years Aaron,but not now.I will always remember you as the good pitcher you were,not as you are.

    Really,Hes gotta go.He gets his you know what handed to him for the game he pitches,then burns out the bullpen for the next several games.
    Send him to the pen,whatever,but lets give the next guy in line a try.

    my vote: DFA. i have seen enough. thanks for all your work over the years. good luck with future endeavors. but you don't have it anymore.

    replace him in the rotation with Matt Maloney. Maloney is likely better ( may be/hopefully a lot better) than Harang right now & has upside.

    Harang to long relief. Owings to the late innings. Maloney to the rotation. Ondrusek to AAA.

    I'm trying to find "traded in 2005" as an option... You know, the option that would've landed the Reds Heyward... can we add that please?

    Re: What should be done with Aaron Harang?

    question for those who want to move him to the pen: i see a guy who is a human batting tee with a low 90s straightball. his secondary pitches are nonexistent. and his control is poor. hence the 1.62 whip & 8.31 ERA.
    do you feel that there is something that can be fixed and that there is a chance of getting some value out of him? or do you just want him available to protect the pen? ie, he is the guy who takes it for the team when certain other starters (who shall remain nameless) go 5 innings?

    My vote: I thought the starting pitching was a weakness on par with the offense. The Reds should've gotten (at least) another starter during the offseason.

    Keep throwing him out there until someone in AAA beats the door down, and even then maybe keep Harang considering Bailey and Cueto aren't exactly doing spectacular just yet.

    Roll him up in a carpet and throw him off a bridge.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I think it depends entirely on what Price thinks. Can he be straightened out?
