Dan Haren made $10 million last night

Actually, he made it over the course of the year, but he crossed over the 180 innings pitched line last night, and that caused his $10 million option to kick in. It’s a player option, so he can choose to walk away from it if he’d like. Though, honestly, I think he’d be kind of dumb to do that. He has really come on as of late, but overall he had a pretty “meh” year, notching...

Dodgers Pitcher Dan Haren Made $10.5 Million Dollars Last Night

Dan Haren had a particularly eventful night on Monday, as he needed to pitch at least 6 innings in order to reach 180 innings for the season and automatically trigger a $10 million contract guarantee for the 2015 season. The 180 innings also allowed Haren to gain a $500,000 bonus for this season. Haren’s agent should be commended in this situation for negotiating such a lucrative...

Giants 5, Dodgers 2: At least Dan Haren was good

If I get this stressed out about a regular-season game with a 4 1/2 game lead, I can’t imagine what a Dodger-Giant playoff series would do to me. The Dodgers dropped the first game of this 3-game series by a 5-2 score. Dan Haren pitched extremely well — well enough to have his 2015 option vest, thus becoming a player option. Translation: Haren will be a Dodger in 2015, barring...

Los Angeles Dodgers kind of survive Coors Field

Here’s a direct quote from my last article, previewing the Los Angeles Dodgers three game series in Coors Field. They head to Coors Field, where Dan Haren, Roberto Hernandez and Carlos Frias will pitch. In Coors Field. Honestly, if the Dodgers win one game and leave without an outfielder killing himself running into a wall, I’ll consider the series a victory. So I guess the Dodgers...

Padres @ Dodgers Sept. 10, 2014: Dan Haren Eyes That Option

We’ve been talking about Dan Haren‘s $10 million 2015 player option, which kicks in if he gets to 180 innings pitched this year for a while. At various points, as Haren struggled badly and looked like he might not even finish the season in the rotation, it seemed clear that he wouldn’t get there. Padres Dodgers 7:10 p.m. Los Angeles, Ca. LF Spangenberg...

Los Angeles Dodgers: A laborious weekend

Labor Day weekend should have been kind to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Dodgers entered the weekend with a 76-58 record, which was best in the National League. Coming off a two game sweep at Arizona, the Dodgers also had the best road record in baseball at 42-26. They were heading down to San Diego to face off against a team that was 13 games behind them in the West. However, the...

Do the Dodgers have an internal replacement for Dan Haren?

Dan Haren struggled yet again yesterday, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on eight hits and two walks in 4.1 innings. By the time the day was over, his ERA stood at 4.76, but his ERA may not even be the biggest problem. Haren now routinely labors to get through even five innings, thus taxing an already weak bullpen and affecting not only the game he pitches but subsequent ones...

Are the Dodgers about to dump Dan Haren?

Before Dan Haren signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers, rumors still persisted that the team was intent on landing Masahiro Tanaka. He knew that Chad Billingsley was on the comeback trail. There was a pretty good chance he'd be looking over his shoulder at some point in the season if he wasn't performing well. Funny thing is, even though Tanaka landed with the New York Yankees...

Los Angeles Dodgers trade rumors- Tampa Bay Rays edition

The Dodgers could use a versatile veteran like Ben Zobrist In what might be the biggest surprise in baseball in 2014, the Tampa Bay Rays are finally bad. They haven’t been decimated by injuries, they just cannot field a competitive team in the uber competitive AL East. Currently, the Rays are 11.5 games behind the first-place Toronto Blue Jays in the East. They will be getting...
