So he replaces Jackson.

That's a lot more money than I thought he'd get.

Yeah, big money for a guy who had an off year and possibly on the decline. But at least it's not a multi-year contract.

It is one year, not that bad in case he can be productive

Wow, good signing by the Nats.

Gonzalez
Strasburg
Zimmerman
Haren
Detwiler

That is a great rotation if they can stay healthy. Or maybe if the Nats want to think outside of the box, I'd look at trading Zimmerman/Detwiler and Morse for a big bat to play 1st. I dont know who's available, but I'd have to believe that they could get a pretty good one for those two guys. Maybe a deal with KC involving Wil Myers?

Guy's I know this is HF, where everyone is overpaid, but it's a 1 year deal. Who gives a ****.

IMO money is irrelevant on one year deals.

Wish the Jays could have done that deal. Would have made a ton of sense for them. Good deal for Nats. Rotation is very solid.

Gotta do something till bingo.

Seriously though, it's not that bad as a 1yr. First thing we tend to look at with FA signings is the dollar figure though.

Seven million dollars buys you about one WAR nowadays. Plenty reason to believe Haren can be a 2 WAR pitcher next year. Plus the worst case scenario isn't too bad because its a short deal. Not sure there's a single team in baseball this wouldn't have been a good deal for.

I really like this deal for Nats. Upgrade over Edwin Jackson. Probably the best rotation in baseball.

Nats are trying to sign LaRoche. If they don't sign him, Morse is your big bat at 1B. No need to trade away cheap, young starting pitching.

They also have Tyler Moore to go between 1B and LF. If he could somehow get regular at bats I can see him busting out in 2013.

As a Phillies fan I am upset by this.

Filthy rotation if Haren returns to form.
