Dan Haren Likely to Join Starting Pitching Free Agent Class
Nick just found this tidbit from Alden Gonzalez, the Angels beat writer:
That's one more pretty big name on the market. Even after a pretty mediocre year in which he had back problems, the 32-year-old is going to get a multi-year deal if he wants it. That's another $20M guy on the market to push names down to the Twins level.
"So, I expect the Angels to decline their team options on Santana ($13 million) and Haren ($15.5 million) during the exclusive negotiating window and go hard after Greinke (six years, $125 million is the price tag many have associated with him)."
I would LOVE to see his offers dip to the point where the Twins would consider him.
