Aaron Harang agrees to a four-year deal with a club option for 2011. There's a press conference at 2, so I'll have more then.

UPDATE: The deal, including the fifth-year buyout, is worth $36.5 million, which when Gil Meche is getting five years for $55 million is a bargain. The press conference will be live on WLW and Reds.com

AWWW YEAH!!!!!!!! :notworthy :notworthy :notworthy :notworthy

I wish Florida teams knew how to lock up pitchers long term. (not that the Marlins need to, but it'd be nice to keep one once in a while)

Yes, except Harang earns his money and got (potentially) 2 more year then Milton. The best part of the Milton contract is it's over after this season. Dan O'Brien, FTL.

Realizing the Reds had the inside track, I thought the Guardado signing was very creative and almost risk-free. There's only been two or three deals I wished Beinfest had been able to pull off this off-season, this was one of them. Putting up $500k to see what "Everyday Eddie" would look like after surgery I thought was a no-brainer.

Eddie Guardado or Felix Rodriguez? Who do you prefer The Marlins to have signed?

The last couple years he's been arguably the most underrated pitcher in baseball...great move by the Reds
If he were to find a way to give up fewer flyballs without lowering his strikeouts or raising his walks, he be a Cy Young contender

F-Rod. Guardado is on the decline.

Felix Rodriguez is just flat out garbage though

I like the reds, my cousin had the best years of his career there (79 sb in '80)..

I just think Pittsburgh, Chicago and Milwaukee all passed them up this offseason.. but thats jmo. I'll be rooting for them though

The Reds are still better than pittsburgh, but they're a fifth place team

Im in the group that thinks Pittsburgh will be a vastly improved team this year. And I'm guessing that group is very small.
