Dan Haren has signed a one-year, $13 million deal with the Washington Nationals. Haren, 32, is a former All-Star who has started at least 30 games in eight consecutive seasons. Much like people who become teachers to get the summer off, Haren was probably interested in going to a team that believes in work-limits for any pitcher under the age of 28 or over the age of 29. Haren missed time with a back injury last season. The Nationals are now a lock for a decade-worth of World Series trips.
The end for Beast Mode?
