I didnt even consider that Haren could be injured. Its a good hypothesis as to why the deal fell through. I would think the Cubs were salivating at the prospect of losing Marmol and gaining Haren.

An interesting analysis on Haren:

I'm guessing his back is okay but the Cubs and Halos didn't want to chance it at that price - though this rationale influencing the Cubs decision is baffling.
If it's obvious it's probably true.
