New Arrival: Dan Haren, sp, LA Dodgers

IMG_0002

I will always remember Dan Haren for the time that he spent in Oakland. His performance in the field, and watching how Oakland GM Billy Beane both acquired and then traded him, were all very exciting.

Haren was brought to the A’s in 2007 from St. Louis: The A’s sent Mark Mulder to the Cards, and they sent Haren, Daric Barton and Kiko Calero to Oakland. I loved Mulder, but it was a really, really good haul and I was happy with the move.

Haren would spend three seasons with the A’s, going 43-34 with a 1.212 WHIP and 120 ERA+. In 2007 he was then traded to Arizona: The A’s gave Haren and Connor Robertson up, while getting Brett Anderson, Chris Carter, Aaron Cunningham, Dana Eveland, Carlos Gonzalez and Greg Smith. It was a hell of a trade.

Brett Anderson would show some ace potential, but was injured too much and traded to the Rockies for Chris Jensen and Drew Pomeranz. Carlos Gonzalez would have made the trade worth it almost alone, but he was also traded away so the A’s could get one season of Matt Holliday. Holliday was eventaully traded for Clayton Mortensen, Shane Peterson and Brett Wallace.

We could do this all day.

Anyway.

Haren has hit a bit of a rough patch the last couple season, but he is only 33 so he has plenty of time to put together a couple more nice season.
