good for him. i heard he wanted a long term contract, and the cubs weren't willing to do that, but i guess he just wanted money. he was a good cub, but seriously the 09 season for him was a joke. he may have pitched 26 games, but how many of them did his pitch count get too high in the 5th inning? but really i'm too excited to see sandberg at sec taylor field this summer, anyway... freakin awesome.
Im more dissapointed they didn't offer arbitration atleast. If he didn't want to come back then fine but a big market team like the Cubs with as good of pitcher as Harden could be they should have offered arb.
All he got was a 1 year deal and an option year. Not sure who's option however. Regardless, you'd think the Cubs could have sprung for that. The guy wanted to stay. Apparently the Cubs can only sign players to bloated 3-8 year contracts.
