The salary breakdown is a $1M bonus, $5M in 2013, $8M in 2014, $13M from 2015-17, and a $13.25M club/vesting option for 2018 that could escalate to $15.75M, with a $2M buyout.

The 6th year club option vests if Harrison pitches 200 innings each of the final three years. Tough.

I disagree. He has pitched like a borderline ace for the past two seasons. If he pitches exactly the same throughout this contract as he has been, it will be a steal (relatively) for texas.

He could potentially outpitch CJ Wilson in the same time frame, and we are paying him 20+ million more.

Edwin Jackson is a slightly worse pitcher, and he got the same amount of money for less years. Texas has a very good front office.

In all seriousness, CJ Wilson was very good in 2011. Perhaps better than his typical season would be. I think Harrison and Wilson are about on the same tier of starting pitchers.

We will see in 2013, though. Wilson could come back from his injury and pitch like a beast. If he regains his 2011 form, he will be clearly better than Harrison. But I'm not expecting that out of him.

Does that make the Rangers uninterested in Lohse?

He has been pretty good pitching in that ballpark in Arlington.
