Angels decline Haren's option. Wish the Cardinals could afford him

The Angels were unable to complete a trade involving former Cardinals hurler Dan Haren Friday evening, so the club instead declined his $15.5-million option which makes Haren a free agent. As much as I was disappointed that the Cardinals signed mediocre hurler Jake Westbrook to a contract extension a couple of months ago, I am much more disappointed now.
