As a baseball fan, I love this time of year. The trade rumors start flying and in the modern world of communications, they fly so fast it’s almost impossible to keep up with them.

Anyway, I just read a bunch of articles that make it appear the Nationals priced Adam Dunn right out of the trade market. Joel Sherman is reporting the Yankees consider Nationals’ GM Mike Rizzo’s asking price for Dunn too steep; the Rays apparently feel the same. Now, I just read that the White Sox are basically saying Rizzo needs his head examined. The only contender remaining at this point are the Giants, and that’s more wishful speculation on the part of their fans than anything else. So, the question needs to be asked: without any real movement on a new contract for Dunn and the Nat’s suddenly without a viable trade partner for him, could the Yankees sneak in at the last minute and grab him?

It certainly seems a plausible enough situation. The Nationals are motivated to move him if they can’t sign him now, since he is a pending free agent and has expressed a desire to test the market at season’s end. The Yankees have expressed interest in bringing Dunn to the Bronx. Certainly, enough knowledgeable baseball types like Dunn (Mike Axisa at River Avenue Blues practically drools over him). As anyone who’s read my previous posts knows, I’m not that crazy about him. This is a player who takes a sort of perverse pride in being lazy, is more or less a statue in the field and strikes out at rates that make Dave Kingman look like a contact hitter. Of course, there are pluses: Dunn has inordinate power from the left side, draws a ton of walks and is impervious to injury. In other words, he’s Nick Johnson with more power and without the ability to get hurt simply by walking on a piece of bubble gum.

So, for the right price, I wouldn’t mind having Dunn on the team. I just don’t think it should be a very high price, given that this would be a two-month rental. And I’m beginning to think this is must-move for the Yankees. Not because they need Adam Dunn – the current DH rotation seems pretty effective – but because Brian Cashman hasn’t made a good personnel move since signing Mark Texeira two offseasons ago, and Cashman has already struck out twice this trading dealine (Cliff Lee and Dan Haren). I realize Hal and Hank aren’t as impetuous as their dad, but eventually they’re going to wonder if Cashman has lost his mojo – so the pressure may well be on in the front office for Cashman to show that he can still play with the big boys.

Somehow, I’m not going to be surprised to wake up Sunday morning to find out the Yanks sprung an 11:59pm deal to put Dunn in Pinstripes.

According to a posting on MLB Trade Rumors, Dan Haren was just acquired by the Angels in exchange for Joe Saunders, 2 Minor League pitchers and the infamous Player-to-be-Named-later. This comes on the heels of a weekend of trade rumors surrounding the Yankees attempts at landing the former Arizona Diamondabacks right-hander.

This was an obvious salary dump by the Diamondbacks, who will realize approximately $20 million in savings over the next two seasons. While Saunders is a serviceable major league starter, Dan Haren is a proven top-of-the-rotation type starter. This may also be the Angels way of stocking up for next year. Haren is a nice addition, but if the Halos are going to make a run at Texas, they need a power bat (or two).

As for the Yankees, I’m not certain if Brian Cashman was simply trying to up the ante for other team in the Haren Sweepstakes or if he really felt that the rumored package Arizona wanted (headlined by Joba Chamberlain) was too steep a price. Either way, it looks like Cashman lost on this one. If the former, he didn’t drive the price nearly high enough, since the prospects the Angels sent to Arizona are not exactly world beaters. If the latter, he failed to trade a struggling reliever for a proven ace. Look, I like Joba’s potential as much as anyone – but this would be the third time Cashman has failed to land an ace because he wouldn’t trade Joba. First it was Johan Santana. Then it was Roy Halladay. And now Haren. At this rate, Joba better turn into the second coming of Walter Johnson or else Cashman is going to end up with a whole carton of eggs on his face.

According to Bob Klapisch, the Yankees have refused to include Joba Chamberlain in any potential deal for Dan Haren. They are still talking though.

Jon Heyman has reported that the Yankees organization is willing to include Ivan Nova, Zach McAllister and 2 prospects for Haren. They don’t want to eat the money and give up Joba at the same time.

“Yankees would pay the $33 mil left on haren, but they have balked at taking chad qualls, chris snyder, too.”

What are your thoughts about these ongoing negotiations? Do you think they will get a deal done?

  Starting Pitcher Dan Haren #15 Of The Arizona Diamondbacks Pitches

Remember when Cashman said he wasn’t going to trade for a starting pitcher? Apparently, he wasn’t telling the truth.

All day, we’ve heard rumors swirling around that the Yankees were in hot pursuit of Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher, Dan Haren. It turns out that they were ‘never close’ on Haren:

The two teams did swap names Friday, the source said. But the Yankees rejected a Diamondbacks proposal that would have sent Joba Chamberlain, highly regarded pitching prospect Ivan Nova and two other prospects to Arizona for Haren.

———————————–

The Yankees, instead, have proposed an entirely prospect-based deal, which Arizona rejected. Diamondbacks president Derrick Hall told reporters in Phoenix that other teams had made offers of “at least equal value” to what the Yankees proposed.

Another sticking point between the two teams, the source said, is how much of the $33 million remaining on Haren’s contract the Diamondbacks are willing to pay. Arizona’s initial proposal would have required the Yankees to assume Haren’s entire contract. The Yankees, and other clubs the Diamondbacks have spoken with, want the quality of the players in the deal to be dependent on how much of Haren’s money Arizona is willing to pay.

The very idea of Cashman rejecting a deal for Dan Haren, that included Joba Chamberlain, Ivan Nova and two ‘lesser prospects’, makes me sick to my stomach. If it were up to me, I would drive Joba to Arizona myself.
