DANNY HAREN RUMORS & GOSSIP
After the wild and crazy Tuesday night win, this was a nice, clean, easy victory for the Pirates, completing another series win. The Bucs finished the homestand 5-1 and are now tied with the Cardinals for 2nd in the Central, 2.5 GB of Milwaukee, and 1 GB of a wild card spot.
The story of the game was really all in the first two innings. Francisco Liriano overcame two early walks...
If Tuesday night’s win was unnecessarily complicated for the Pirates, this one was nice and easy. Dan Haren looked terrible in the first inning and the Pirates made him pay for it; of the nine batters that came to the plate in the first, the Pirates had three hits, drew three walks, hit two hard outs, and had a sacrifice fly. The sum total of that was a four-run inning keyed by...
By the second inning of tonight’s game, I was all but certain that we’d never see Dan Haren in Dodger blue again. His recent struggles have been well-documented, but this was something else. In the first four pitches, Haren allowed hits to Gregory Polanco and Travis Snider, then let Andrew McCutchen rip a liner that fortunately found Juan Uribe‘s glove. But then he walked Neil...
We all think the Dodgers are going to add another starting pitcher sometime before the trading deadline, but while the popular thought is David Price — the Dodgers being one of the few teams with the prospects to get him, the bankroll to afford him, and a playoff run to make it worthwhile — that’s potentially not the right direction. Another top ace would certainly be fun...
The Dodgers could use a versatile veteran like Ben Zobrist
In what might be the biggest surprise in baseball in 2014, the Tampa Bay Rays are finally bad.
They haven’t been decimated by injuries, they just cannot field a competitive team in the uber competitive AL East.
Currently, the Rays are 11.5 games behind the first-place Toronto Blue Jays in the East. They will be getting...
Dan Haren has now made 16 starts. His ERA is 3.83. He’s stayed healthy enough to take the ball every fifth day. If you’d been told that’s how the first three months of his season would go when he signed a mere one-year contract last November, you’d probably have been thrilled and have quickly accepted that deal.
But there’s two problems with that, of course. The first is...
While Dan Haren has no chance of matching, or even coming close to, duplicating what Clayton Kershaw did the other night, but he can go a long way in helping the Dodgers continue they’re solid play of late.

LOS ANGELES -- Dan Haren pitched into the seventh inning and hit a tiebreaking three-run double, leading the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 6-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Saturday night.
Dee Gordon hit a rare home run for the Dodgers, who are 10-3 against the Diamondbacks and 27-30 against everyone else. With six games left between the NL West rivals, this is the earliest...
Home runs have plagued both Dan Haren and Tony Cingrani during their recent struggles. Given Haren's issues with the long ball in recent matchups with the Cincinnati Reds, the Los Angeles Dodgers might not like his chances to sort things out in Monday night's series opener.
Haren (5-4, 3.50 ERA) is 0-3 with a 4.88 ERA in his last four outings, allowing seven home runs in...

The Washington Nationals are willing to part with starting pitcher Dan Haren but the price will be steep.
Haren, 32, passed though waivers last month and can be traded to any team.
On the season Haren is just 8-11 with a 4.66 ERA and a 1.24 ERA but the 6-foot-5 right hander has thrown considerably better since the beginning of July. Since July Haren holds a 2.53 ERA and a 54/11 K...
