Welp, so much for that. The Arizona Diamondbacks and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim agreed on a trade that will send Dan Haren to LA for Joe Saunders and minor leaguers Patrick Corbin (12th ranked prospect) and Rafael Rodriguez (22nd). The Diamondbacks will also receive the dreded ‘player to be named later’.

While it was a fun idea for awhile, Dan Haren won’t be a Yankee. I’m totally fine with that though, are you?

As the MLB Trade Deadline approaches and NFL training camp is ready to kick off, sports in the northeast have become very exciting. The Yankees are in play for Dan Haren, the Mets have snapped their West Coast losing streak, and the Jets are hoping to ink Darrelle Revis to a new deal…

'It's a Bird..It's a Plane..It's NYSOS!'

We’ve been hearing it for the last 12 hours or so that the Yankees and D’Backs are in discussions for two-time All-Star, Dan Haren. Diamondbacks president, Derrick Hall confirmed that the Yankees are one of the team that are in on Haren.

I mentioned last night that the D’Backs are coveting ‘young pitching’. Whether that pertains to minor leaguers or players in the big leagues remains to be seen.

Jayson Stark of ESPN said last night that was nothing was ‘imminent’ between the Yanks and D’Backs.

The Yankees rejected Arizona’s original proposal of sending Joba Chamberlain, Ivan Nova, and two lower level pitching prospects for Haren and the entire $30 million remaining on the deal.

Would the Yankees trade the arbitration-eligible Chamberlain if Arizona agreed to pay a part of Haren’s contract? It’d be hard to say no…

Do I think this deal will happen?: No. The Yankee attachment to Joba Chamberlain will ultimately halt this deal.

Do you think this will happen?

When I got home from work, I turned on the TV. As I began to flip through the channels, I saw a gigantic tornado forming on MLB Network. John Smoltz and friends were saying that the Yankees had become ‘front runners’ to trade for Diamondbacks’ 30-year-old ace, Dan Haren. Haren’s numbers (7-8, 4.60 ERA) don’t look great, but if we look more closely, Haren is the league leader in strikeouts (141) and has suffered from the inept Diamonback bullpen.

To me, this potential move screams one thing loud and clear about the 2010 Yankees…

The New York Mets were defeated by the Arizona Diamondbacks in a 4-3 loss Wednesday night. A battle of the bullpens led to a walk off double off the bat of pinch hitter Chris Snyder against Fernando Nieve in the 14th inning. Mets fail to gain ground on the Atlanta Braves, who also fell in extra innings earlier tonight, and they remain 6.5 games out of first place.
