    Had some bad numbers last season. Hopefully pitching in Dodger stadium will help him get his stuff back.

    I like this deal for many reasons.

    1) One year deal

    2) I would rather rent Haren, then overpay Ricky for a long term deal. I assume the Dodgers think Haren can easily produce the numbers Ricky gave us. Minus September.

    3) He can hit. Our pitching staff is going to rake


    I have read multiple times how hard it was for him to be on the East Coast while his family was out West. His son went into kindergarden and he has a three year old daughter as well. He said he was lonely and they were never able to visit. I hope at the very least, he can be happy out in LA with his family again. Good luck Haren, I hope you can turn things around.

    Tanaka's future is certainly up in the air, so signing my second choice, which was originally my first choice, is the way to go.

    The bad numbers were mostly in the things out of his control

    He had a fine K rate - 21%
    He had an excellent BB rate - 4%

    His defense independent numbers suggest that his runs allowed should have been in the 3.50 to 3.75 range.


    As long as this isn't a Ned 3-year special, I agree with this signing.



    ETA:
    Haren's projected for 32 starts, 180 innings, 3.6 runs allowed per 9 and 3.0 WAR.

    For 1/10 plus a vesting option. Excellent deal.

    So glad we stayed away from Nolasco, or a pitcher similar. A one year deal is really nice for a change.

    Yeah excellent signing. Like Filihok said the advanced stats points to a turnaround.

    Pitching at DS, and in other WC parks should help his ERA come down a little bit. Sspecially if his K/B stays solid.

    Good sign. I think they will pass on Tanaka and surprise everyone and sign Cano at the winter meetings.

    If Tanaka cant be signed this year cause of no agreement between MLB and Japan, then Cano is a possibility with Kemp being involved.

    If Tanaka can be signed this year....i think that's the big deal the Dodgers do 1st.

    Haren sign is good.

    I am thinking we are going to go hard on either tanaka or price now. Haren would be an excellent number 5. If only he could pitch like he did in Arizona this could be an excellent deal. Tanaka is preferable. Good start to the season though.

    Love this signing!! 1 year deal is amazing

    His HR rate should decrease in DS, just a great signing, also staying away from Nolasco and Arroyo

    The next question does this eliminate us from the Tanaka sweepstakes? I hope not
    Foam Party!
