Who to Start Message Board
I'm not feeling great about this. His last matchup against STL was 4/20, 8 K over 6 IP, 7 runs given up but still managed to get the win since ARI scored 9 runs.
Haren's last three starts:
5/27: 6.1 IP, 10 H, 8 ER (4 HR), 6 K, 0 BB, took the loss
6/1: 8.0 IP, 7 H, 0 ER (0 HR), 7 K, 0 BB, no decision
6/7: 5.2 IP, 9 H, 3 ER (0 HR), 5 K, 2 BB, got the win
He just seems to go back and forth so much. Yahoo! gives Haren a 2 stars out of 5 for Haren today: "Opponents are batting .357 in 56 at-bats against Haren's fastball in his last 3 outings." Tough call, looking for opinions. What are other Haren owners doing? Thanks.
I would trade while you still have the chance, otherwise everything's is just going to go downhill and not just half way, it's going to go all the way.
Please write back, so I can see what you think of my advice.

downhill from where?....do you expect the guy to finish with a 5.5 era and 1.5 whip or something? Perhaps he has a good second half this year...
i'm not saying don't trade him but i don't maybe wait for the whip to get down to 1.22-1.25 and then try to trade him. Point being get the upside that should be coming.....worth the risk imo.
i'm sitting him this start as its his 2nd start this week.
i already clinched the wins column this week in my matchup with 4 to 1 and i'm winning in era by about 0.80 . my WHIP is slightly higher than my opponents and i feel that haren could get a win today, but at the cost of a high era and whip ..just like earlier this week.
and if haren does prove me completely wrong, then fine by me, i wont lose sleep over it, he deserves to sit today in my situation.
