Caught me, I was accepting Woodman's position at face value, as I hadn't looked too closely into the numbers myself.

If Haren wants to stay in LA, it's pretty much moot. But the thought (the hope, really) was that if there was substance to a decline, it might bring him within reach of the Jays as a stabilizing influence to the rest of the staff, who might benefit from watching a real pitcher (as opposed to a thrower) do his thing.
