Don't drop Haren, as the last poster stated Lester has turned it around so why can't Haren? I'll hold onto a guy with elite upside than keep a closer who's going to lose his job in the near future. Make's perfect sense to me.
You're taking the optimistic route here, and that's fine. I just don't see it happening. Lester, as far as we know, is completely healthy. Early in the year he pitched well, but had some bad luck and couldn't buy a win for awhile. Then he went through a spell where he was just bad. Now it looks like he's on the right track. Haren is hurt. His back has been an issue for awhile. That's been reported by a couple different outlets. There's a difference. I haven't looked at the Angels schedule for the remainder of the season, but if the matchups are favorable and if you're committed to him, than so be it. I'd move on with what you have though.
