Yes. But he was still damn good, his FIP was good every month but July. And his xFIP was never higher than 3.95 and was 3.65, 3.54, 2.97 in the other three.
Still, Haren is a nice get.
But that's still not that great for a RP. FIP and xFIP for RP's aren't the strongest indicators to begin with, and none of those numbers are super awesome anyways.
Marmol looked better, but he still wasn't what I'd call a good bet as a RP until he fixed his BB/9 under 6. I'm glad to be out from under him and Dan Haren is a fantastic get.

I'm a Chicago Cubs, Philadelphia Eagles, Philadelphia Flyers, and a University of Kentucky fan. You may be a Dallas Cowboys fan, a St. Louis Cardinals fan, a Pittsburgh Penguins fan or a Louisville Cardinals alumn. From June 12 - July 13, we are both American. Go, go, USA!
