This started as a fanshot but my fingers typed it into a fanpost. Apparently Dan Haren is open to giving up life in the desert as a rattlesnake for something more lucrative. Something more likely to make waves in the postseason. Something, I imagine to be an angel, a bag of rocks, or who knows, a monk?
Haren says he would like to stay on the west coast and, while he's not the cheapest pitcher out there, he's under control for at least 2 more years. I would be interested in this guy getting a look. He's the type of pitcher that worries me as part of a competitive team. If the Dodgers, Giants, or Rockies make a move for him I see a much tougher sprint to the finish line.
I imagine a team in our own division would want our women and all of our jewels to give up Haren but, at the same time, I think they're desperate. They suck. It's a fact. They need relief pitching and guess who has got it?
