    The Yankees made headlines when it was announced that they had signed Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka to a seven-year deal worth $155 million. They were in need of rotation help and satisfied that need in a big way by signing the best free agent pitcher on the market. That the Yankees signed him came as…

    The Dodgers may have just locked up starter Clayton Kershaw for the price of $215 million over seven years, but they may not be spending yet. Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Dodgers could still add more pitching. Getting involved on Japanese pitcher Masahiro Tanaka would require approval from ownership, but they could…

    Here’s the rundown of where this winter’s top 150 free agents are landing, continuously updated throughout the offseason. Re-signings are posted in red, while players signing with new teams are in blue.

  4. Let’s pump the brakes on the “PED use got Jhonny Peralta his big deal” talk

    With a respectful nod to Ken Rosenthal, our own Bill Baer and the players who have taken to Twitter in the past couple of days to talk about Jhonny Peralta, may I ask why everyone seems to think that Peralta’s new contract represents some sort of problem with the drug penalty system in baseball and…

  5. Report: Dan Haren to sign with Dodgers on one-year, $10 million deal

    Nov 24, 2013, 9:49 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    Ken Rosenthal is reporting on Twitter that the Dodgers and free agent starter Dan Haren have agreed to a one-year, $10 million deal with a 2015 option that vests at 180 innings pitched. The deal is pending a physical. Haren, now 33 years old, had a shaky first half of the 2013 season with the…

    Robinson Cano

    Here’s the wrap on how Monday’s qualifying offer deadline went down. First, here’s a quick guide to the qualifying offers game: Teams are allowed to make $14.1 million qualifying offers to free agents they’ve employed for at least a year and thus secure a draft pick if they depart. That pick will come immediately following the…

    Robinson Cano

    This year’s annual free agents column has expanded to a top 150, though I’m writing up just the top 55 (it was going to be 50, but I couldn’t help myself). The rest are presented in a list. Not included are players whose contract options are sure to be exercised. Players are ranked based not…

  8. Cardinals await conclusion of ALCS as World Series will be a rematch of 2004 or 2006

    Oct 18, 2013, 11:50 PM EDT

    NLCS - Los Angeles Dodgers v St Louis Cardinals

    With a thorough 9-0 drubbing of the Dodgers in Game 6 of the NLCS, the Cardinals clinched a World Series appearance for the first time since, uh, last week. At least it feels that way, anyway. They won the World Series in 2011 against the Texas Rangers in seven games. The Cardinals are anxiously waiting…

  9. Dan Haren: “If we got in, we’d be the team to beat”

    Nationals starter Dan Haren with your quote of the day, via Adam Kilgore: “If we got in, we’d be the team to beat.” — Dan Haren. — Adam Kilgore (@AdamKilgoreWP) September 29, 2013 Haren shut out the Diamondbacks tonight over seven innings, allowing just four hits and a walk while striking out five. He lowered…

  10. No, the Strasburg shutdown in 2012 is not why the Nats missed the playoffs in 2013

    Sep 24, 2013, 2:32 PM EDT

    strasburg getty

    The worst part of narrative-driven sports journalism is that it usually results in those who engage in it bending the facts to fit the narrative rather than identifying a narrative that springs logically from those facts. As an example I give you John Feinstein’s column on the Nats. Which came out today, but which you…

  11. Nationals lose, so Braves clinch the NL East

    Nationals starter Dan Haren surrendered eight hits and three earned runs over six innings in a 4-2 loss Sunday in Game 1 of a day-night doubleheader against the Marlins. Game 2 is scheduled to get underway at 7:05 p.m. ET, but it won’t matter much. The Braves — by virtue of the Nats’ defeat — have…

    Mike Napoli

    Red Sox 7, Rays 3: Mike Carp with a tenth inning grand slam. Good job extending your lead, Boston! Good job letting the Yankees pull to within one game of the wild card, Rays! Apropos of nothing, I’d give a lot to hear what Red Sox fans who love this beards thing had to say…

  13. Jose Fernandez one-hits the Nationals over seven innings

    Sep 6, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    Jose Fernandez

    Marlins starter Jose Fernandez padded his NL Rookie of the Year and Cy Young cases with seven outstanding innings against the Nationals tonight, bringing a no-hitter into the sixth inning. The Nationals stood no chance, recording just one hit — a squibber down the third base line by pinch-hitter Zach Walters with one out in…

  14. The Nationals want a big return for Dan Haren

    Aug 26, 2013, 9:15 AM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    Nationals starter Dan Haren has cleared waivers so anyone can trade for him. If they do it before the end of August, anyone who trades for him can have him on their postseason roster. Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports, however, that acquiring him will be costly as the Nationals want a “group of…

  15. Dan Haren has turned his season around for the Nationals

    Aug 21, 2013, 12:46 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    It’s probably too late to do the Nationals much good, but Dan Haren has turned his season around in a big way following a miserable start. Haren signed a one-year, $13 million deal with the Nationals after the Angels declined his $15.5 million option, buying him out for $3.5 million instead. He was coming off…

  16. Rosenthal: Dan Haren, Erik Bedard, Brendan Ryan and Matt Lindstrom have cleared waivers

    Aug 14, 2013, 11:31 PM EDT

    Loads of baseball players are passed through waivers every August and we only wind up with a handful of acutal waiver trades, but here’s the word anyway from FOX Sports’ Ken Rosenthal: Cleared waivers, can be traded to any team: #Nationals’ Haren, #Astros’ Bedard, #WhiteSox’s Lindstrom, #Cubs’ Guerrier, #Mariners’ Ryan. 1/2 — Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal)…

  17. What do Dan Haren, Barry Zito, and A.J. Burnett have in common?

    Aug 9, 2013, 10:05 PM EDT

    Philadelphia Phillies v Washington Nationals

    No, none of them are in my kitchen. Nationals starter Dan Haren tossed seven solid innings of ball tonight, holding the Phillies to two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out seven. Haren earned the W, the first of his career against the Phillies and his seventh of the year. The win…

  18. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Jul 9, 2013, 7:03 AM EDT

    Carlos Gomez

    Brewers 4, Reds 3: Holy moly that was a crazy game-ending catch for Carlos Gomez, robbing Joey Votto of the go-ahead home run: Incredible. Rays 7, Twins 4: The Rays continue to roll, winning their ninth in ten chances. Joe Maddon talked about his team going ten games over .500: “The thing I like is…

    Washington Nationals starter Ross Detwiler throws a first inning pitch against the Los Angeles Dodgers during their MLB National League baseball game in Los Angeles

    MASN’s Dan Kolko reports that lefty Ross Detwiler, dealing with an ailing back, will be placed on the 15-day disabled list. Dan Haren, recovering from inflammation in his right shoulder, will be activated from the DL and start on Monday, taking Detwiler’s spot on the 25-man roster. Detwiler had compiled a 4.04 ERA over 13…

  20. Cubs give Carlos Marmol his walking papers

    Jun 25, 2013, 12:45 PM EDT

    Carlos Marmol

    As expected the Cubs just released Ian Stewart from Triple-A, but they also made an even bigger move by designating Carlos Marmol for assignment. Marmol has been awful this season, making it easy to forget that not so long ago he was one of the most dominant relievers in baseball and his career ERA in…

  21. Taylor Jordan likely to replace injured Dan Haren in Nationals’ rotation

    Dan Haren is headed to the disabled list with a shoulder injury and Tom Schad of MLB.com reports that the Nationals will likely call up pitching prospect Taylor Jordan to replace him in the rotation. Jordan returned from Tommy John elbow surgery last year and didn’t crack Baseball America‘s list of top 10 Nationals prospects…

  22. Nationals place Dan Haren on the disabled list

    Jun 23, 2013, 1:44 PM EDT

    haren getty

    “There’s aches and pains,” Nationals starter Dan Haren told reporters Saturday. “Nothing I haven’t pitched through in the past. Physically, I’m OK.” But the club’s decision-makers seem to disagree. According to Amanda Comak of the Washington Times, the Nationals are placing Haren on the 15-day disabled list. The right-hander did have back problems earlier this season…

  23. Dan Haren turns in another terrible start for the Nationals

    Jun 22, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Dan Haren Getty

    Dan Haren‘s ugly season continued this afternoon, as he failed to make it out of the fourth inning against the Rockies and allowed six runs while recording 10 outs. Haren actually struck out five and walked zero, but he served up his league-leading 19th homer of the season and now has a 6.15 ERA in…

  24. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Jun 12, 2013, 6:22 AM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Pittsburgh Pirates

    The losing team scored two runs in eight of last night’s fifteen games. I have no idea if that’s uncommon or not, but I noticed it and I’m going to pretend it’s a sign or portent or something. Anyway: Pirates 8, Giants 2: Welcome to the big leagues Gerrit Cole. The 2011 number one pick…

  25. Diamondbacks lefty Patrick Corbin is 7-0 with a 1.44 ERA

    May 21, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT

    Patrick Corbin

    Patrick Corbin was never considered an elite prospect and had a decent but unspectacular rookie season for the Diamondbacks last year, throwing 107 innings with a 4.54 ERA and 86/25 K/BB ratio. He had to compete for the fifth starter job this spring and now … well, it’s safe to say his rotation spot is…
