    Angels clearing salary

    Trade Ervin to the Royals for a minor league player. Ervin had a tough year last year, but a good August and September.

    were the RS in on this? 

    Will Haren be offered in a similar deal?

    will Trumbo, Mroales or Beourgois become available?

    Angels apparently clearing salary to go all in on Greinke.

    Re: Angels clearing salary

    Trumbo's not going anywhere I would imagine. He's still very young (26 I think). Morales I would love as a replacement for Ortiz. He had a freak injury, then got supplanted by Trumbo and Pujols. I'm sure the guy would leap at the opportunity to move on. He signed a 1 year deal to avoid arbitration last year...not sure, but is he a FA? He turns 30, he might have one year of control left. Shouldn't cost too much in a trade if he still is controlled.

    Haren is probably available for a similiar deal. He has injury concerns, but for a lower level prospect, I'd cough up his 1 year option (13 maybe?).

    Think the Angels is going to go hard at Grienke which that is why they are freeing up some money.

    Trumbo isnt going anywhere since Vernon Well is possible going to be traded (I do not know how they can do it) and Hunter is going to walk away.  That is 2/4th of OF that they could lose during this off season.

    If the Sox want Harden they should expand the trade to include Wells and cash, in exchange for Pimental and Nava or Kalish.

    Red Sox Interested In Dan Haren By  Ben Nicholson-Smith [November 1 at 9:00am CST]

    The Red Sox are among the teams interested in Dan Haren, Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reports (on Twitter). The Angels appear to be working to trade Haren and have been weighing possible deals for at least three days.

    Haren's contract includes a $15.5MM option with a $3.5MM buyout. The Angels are expected to decline the option if they don’t complete a trade first. Yesterday GM Jerry Dipoto sent Ervin Santana to Kansas City for minor league left-hander Brandon Sisk in a move that could be a precursor to a trade involving Haren.

    The 32-year-old started 30 games for the Angels this past season. He posted a 4.33 ERA with 7.2 K/9 and 1.9 BB/9 in 176 2/3 innings, numbers that fall short of his career norms.

    NO to Vernon Wells.  There is a reason why Toronto got rid of him and the Angels are stuck with him.

    I like Haren.  He did well with Oakland, St. Louis and the Angels.  

    Haren is also a work horse.  I hope the Red Sox get him.  

    Cherington should ask the Angels if they want Lackey back.  LOL

    Re: Angels clearing salary

    Dan Haren could be a good fit in Boston.

    The estimated $12 million net salary for 2013 might be a slight overpay, but the Sox would be on the hook for only a single year (as opposed the the long-term commitments awaiting free agent pitchers of comparable talent).

    Would a bullpen arm be enough to acquire Haren if the Angels kick in the $3.5 million the Halos would otherwise pay in the buyout of a declined option?

    I agree with you.  I like Haren a lot (I sound like I know the guy LOL).  

    A work horse, drama-free (unlike A-Rod or Manny), and a team player.  

    The Angels need bullpen help too.

    I agree that Haren would slide into the rotation nicely.  Now that Peavy is signed, I think Haren is the most logical option.  The best thing about him is that he doesn't issue walks, which is something the Sox staff needs to get back to.  What will it take to get him in a trade? A bullpen arm, which the Halo's need, plus a prospect outside the top 15?

    I am wondering if Workman or Wilson, plus Cechini would ge it done?

    Haren, not Harden. Why in Gods name would you want Wells??? Are you feeling ok?

    I read that the Angels would kick in the 3.5mm buyout tag if they traded him. 12mm is a bit much, but like you said, its only 1 year. I can live with that if he passes the physical.

    it appears that his problem last year was with his back, not arm, elbow/shoulder. Looking at his post DL stint numbers, it seems he bounced back to norm.

    I could never quite figure out Haren. He really has pitched quite well over the years, innings eater, with quite mediocre pitch repetoire. Averaged 90-91 on his fastball last year.

    I think with the dearth of pitching this year, and the related costs due to the shortage, Haren is a good gamble for 1 year and $12M. I dont think he is quite the "answer" to the SOx pitching needs, as I think they need more a #1 or #2 along side Lester/Buch.

    Yes Haren is a work horse. If he's like another work horse ( lackey ) We could have two Clydsdales that will be pulling our BUD Wagon. Thats just what we need.

    I am in favor of giving LAckey a chance to show he is healthy and knows how to pitch. He was 93 on the gun at the end of this year. RS need pitching, I say give him a chance
