In my official picks for 2011, I had Dan Haren taking home the Cy Young.
My predictions are so often so terrible that one starts to look good, I need to gloat.
4 games in, a 3-0 record with a 0.73 ERA.
Tonight he threw a 1 hitter tonight. No doubt some number cruncher will tell me why he actually sucked in this game, but I’ll give him credit.
And while he got a tough no decision in his first start of the season, he picked up a vulture win as a reliever 3 days ago… and then took the mound tonight and went 9.
Sounds like an ace to me.
