@tdotsports – do not impugn the stache – it is gloriously awful, a fact which Derek “Dutch Oven” Holland celebrates. And he signed a ball for my kid as “the Dutch Oven.” in other words, horrible stache+great sense of humor+94mph fastball = win.
Speaking of 4 WAR 25 year old pitchers who were rated pretty high as a prospect, how about locking up Harrison if he has another strong year? I would assume the surplus value diminishes the longer you wait and also the players likely see the coming free agency as a chance to make big money.

Surplus value may decrease but risk arguably does as well.
