Jon Heyman reports that the Dodgers deal with Aaron Harang we were talking about yesterday is done: two-years, $12 million.

Fine enough. I like Harang and I think that money is pretty reasonable for a guy who pitched 170 innings last year and looked good for most of them.

But I do think it’s worth noting that Harang is the second pitcher in two years who the Dodgers signed after a make-good year with the Padres. Jon Garland was the guy last year. No one is ever going to look as good as a pitcher looks in Petco Park.

    Except possibly Miami… I wonder if they going to go all Caddyshack II and give bonus runs for hitting the Dolphin Carrousel on a HR.

      Craig, I thought that a Caddyshack II reference was rewarded by an automatic 48 hour ban from commenting and breathing. Do we not enforce the rules anymore? Geez…jk but that movie sucked!

        There was a Caddyshack II? Oh yeah…

    if Harang can pitch as many years as he did in GABP without being destroyed I am sure he can pitch in any other park without having to worry.

      Harang didn’t exactly thrive his last 2.5 years with the Reds.
