Blown Haren Deal Is A Major Fail


This seems pretty simple. Trade an overpaid, inconsistent reliever for a very good starter, who may or may not have some back issues. It's one year. Keep to contend, or trade in July to build for the future.

What amount of money could possibly have gotten in the way of this perfect trade?

Good starting pitching beats good relief, every time. At the trade deadline, if Haren is good, he's worth a heck of a lot more than Marmol. I believe we could have kicked in a few extra mil to do this smart thing.

Oh, and by the way... Twitter sucks. And "journalists" don't wait for proper confirmation anymore. What a joke. But this has happened to Hoyer twice now. He'd better get his dealings under tighter control, because this is a problem. You can blame players and agents, but from my seat, I don't see this happening to other GMs twice in five months
