You have to figure that the Yankees, Mets, Red Sox and Cubs could be involved in a Haren deal just because they seem to be in the rumors whenever a top pitcher goes on the market. A couple of teams I see emerging as less usual candidates would be Philly (Carrasco or Drabek as a centerpiece?), Texas (their farm system has so many possibilities but probably not Holland or Feliz and likely not Smoak but there is still alot there) or the Angels if Lackey/Santana are reinjured. Just some random possibilities, I'm sure that a handful of people will get worked up to the extent of 'I would never in a million years trade Carrasco for Haren or something like that' but the Phillies are potential match (possibly the best match imo).
