Re: Here we go...Haren
I don't think Haren is the same pitcher Mulder is. As far as I can tell, Haren is still on the way up, whereas Mulder was on top of the mountain when he got traded. I don't think anyone could have known that Mulder would slide off so quickly, but you don't avoid a trade for Haren just because that happened to another A's pitcher. By comparison, the Tim Hudson deal seems to have worked out a little better for Atlanta, right?
