Dan Haren: The Diamondbacks’ firesale has begun! Arizona’s best pitcher, Dan Haren, got dealt to the Angels for … nobody good. “Haren leads the NL in strikeouts and has an outstanding 4.8-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio … He has pitched almost exactly as well as he did a year ago, when he finished fifth in the NL Cy Young voting and made his third consecutive All-Star team.” The Diamondbacks, 25 games under .500 with the third worst record in baseball, got back in return Joe Saunders, reliever Rafael Rodriguez, an unheralded pitcher named Patrick Corbin, and the always uninteresting “player to be named later.” The trade is considered to be so lopsided that the word “depantsed” was used. Rough year in sports for Arizona, huh? The following superstars have left town – Kurt Warner, Anquan Boldin, Amare Stoudemire, and now Haren. [SI, Yahoo]
