one of the things that crossed my mind was that if this is what Arizona got for Haren he must have been a free agent after the season. wrong. he is signed through 2012 with a club option for 2013.
10:$8.25M, 11:$12.75M, 12:$12.75M, 13:$15.5M club option ($3.5M buyout)
I really don't understand this trade for Arizona unless the PTBN is some high top prospect.
is this a money saving issue?
this looks like one of the worst trades ever! even the Twins got more for Johan Santana.
I know Haren's numbers this season haven't been as expected, but Arizona fans must be thinking WTF!EDIT
