I'm sure that there must be a few posts on this guy, as he is an intriguing prospect in most fantasy leagues. However, I couldn't find anything up-to-date, so I thought I'd start a thread of my own. Forgive me if I am beating a dead horse.
With that said, what is everyone's opinion of this guy? I had him on my radar early on as a major breakout candidate, but began to pour cold water on that idea after he got thumped around by virtually everyone, en route to a dismal 1-7 start (perhaps most disturbing were his high walk totals which usually scare me off pretty fast). Nevertheless, he has now won his last 3 decisions and reportedly looked good doing it.
I am reminded of last year and how I had my sights on Mark Teixeira, but then forgot about him after his cold start. Someone else snagged him and...well, we all know how that one turned out. Could Haren be a similar (even if not quite as dramatic) turnaround candidate this year? In short, is he ready to step up to his talent now or will he be an inconsistent headache? I've got Beckett heading to the DL and am seriously thinking about taking a flyer on this kid. Thoughts?
