Apples and oranges. Haren had a 16M option while hanson will get something like 4M in arb. Haren would have had 1 more year before FA and Hanson has 3.
Imo this offseason is showing that both Hanson and Haren are more damaged than initially thought. The Angels couldn't even find a team to give up anything for Haren on a one year deal while Hanson and his unfulfilled potential only brought back a very good RP'er.
