View Full Version : Aaron Harang signs with the Padres

12-05-2010, 01:07 AM
The Padres have agreed to terms with free agent right-hander Aaron Harang on a one-year deal worth about $3MM. The contract will become official once he passes a physical.

Harang, a San Diego native, had interest in pitching for his hometown team, especially since Petco Park is pitcher friendly. The 32-year-old made 20 starts in 2010, pitching to a 5.32 ERA in 111 2/3 innings. His 2.2 K/BB ratio is solid, but not as impressive as it was from 2005-09 when Harang struck out 3.5 times as many hitters as he walked. A fly ball pitcher, Harang would likely fit well in San Diego's spacious outfield.

Bill Center of The San Diego Union-Tribune originally reported that the two sides were close to a deal while Friarhood, a fan site, confirmed the agreement. MLB.com's Corey Brook later tweeted the terms of the deal.

Harang Petco Park....

Great fit/move for SD. A vet to replace Garland.

Good deal because flyball pitchers absolutely thrive at Petco.

Bro... you misspelled the word "Signs"

I wonder what he was singing??

12-05-2010, 01:29 AM
Also you misspelled his first name "Aaron"
I'm not trying to sound like a *****. :)

He is going to do double duty. Sing the national anthem and the seventh inning stretch for every home game.

It is never a bad decision for a pitcher to sign in San Diego.

Good deal for the Padres. Part of the reason they had to trade Gonzalez is because they simply had too many holes ot fill and too little salary to do it. This goes towards filling one of those holes.

Lol so true. Harang and his agent probably preferred San Diego because he has a good chance of putting up good numbers as a rental and then cashing in next season.

This is an excellent value for the Padres.

One of the monitors changed it for you. You originally put "sings". Look at some posts after me, you can see some people poked fun at it.

This is a good move for both parties here. I'd love to see Harang pick it up again.

Will be interesting to see how he does in SDP.

Could be a great move, for 3 mil, the former Reds ace is probably worth the risk.

Great move for Padres, low risk.. high reward
