This ace had a 3.29 era in the second half of last year. Striking out 73 in 15 games.

He has a 3.39 era era in this seasons first half. Striking out 80 in 15 games. He has a 1.40 era in 4 starts (with one at COL).


Will this guy continue to mature into a cy young caliber pitcher? Has a great K/BB ratio. The only progelm I see with him is his WHIP. He gives up too many hits.

i dont think he will be cy young material. he just isnt in the same class as guys like johan santana. he should be a solid starter for a number of years though.

That's my take also. He's the type of pitcher that will have a long and successful career but never be a world beater. He's well worth drafting every year, though.

You can't be too picky about a guy who can be an ace for most fantasy teams. He's become very reliable and you can just about start against anybody.

Especially the Yankees. Haren owns the Yankees.

Yea this guy is legit. This certainly isn't a product of luck. In fact, he might get even better, his LOB% is 77%, league average is 70% and last year Haren's was 72%. His k/bb is 3.68 (fantastic) and his k/9 is 6.7. (solid)

Oh, and by the way, his whip is 1.14 so I don't know what you were talking about. ;-D

edit- that's why you don't post when you're overtired, obviously we should expect his era to go up a bit, since he is getting lucky with his LOB%, not down. :-o :-)
