This is something I hate to ignore especially when getting an email from someone that is a reliable source. The Cardinals are trying to make a deal for Dan Haren. Lets rewind back to December 18, 2004 when the Cardinals made an regrettable trade by sending Dan Haren, Kiko Calero and Daric Barton to the Athletics for Mark Mulder. I really despised that trade but with this news the Cardinals could bring him back to replace Jake Westbrook that is suffering with back problems. Haren has been pretty good of late. He has improved to a 8-11 record so far. The Nationals did place Dan Haren on waivers back on August 8, he was actually put on revocable waivers in which any team could claim Haren. Haren would become a free agent in 2014. I would like this move. Haren could help the Cardinals to get deep into the play offs. I sure hope this happens.
