This could also hint towards Eovaldi being dealt.

Nah. If Haren retires the rotation becomes

Alvarez

Latos

Cosart

Peavy

Eovaldi

Unless the front office feels confident in Koehler being our #5 to start the season AND feel good with our backup options of Hand/Nicolino/whoever, I'd say we need Eovaldi. Koehler becomes one hell of an insurance policy for any pitchers getting injured/performing poorly while also being incredibly useful in the bullpen until then.

Again, this is all under the assumption that Haren retires, and given the circumstances we shouldn't be expecting him to pitch in Miami even if decides to play again anyway (he'll be traded to the West Coast without a doubt).

This makes me think Haren is either close to a decision, close to being dealt, or is being pushed by the Marlins to make his decision sooner rather than later.

If Peavy is suddenly attracting more interest he won't be a free agent for long. And if our push for him is dependent on Haren he'd better hurry it up because Peavy isn't gonna wait forever once he gets an offer he likes.

If he doesn't, we can always trade him to a west coast team for a decent bullpen arm

Seems like a price we could have done. I hope Haren's indecisiveness didn't hurt us here.

Peavey got a NTC. Fish wouldn't and shouldn't of done that.

Plus if the dollars were equal or close, odds are he would choose San Fran anyway. He's close with Bochy. We would've had to overpay to get him

True, looks more like a preference for him. And thats fine. But Haren needs to get on the ball already. Probably waiting to see what Mathis gets him for Christmas and make his decision off that.

"WTF? A $10 Starbucks gift card? Forget it Jeff, I'm retiring!"

If this is Loria's idea of spending after that backloaded Stanton contract, I'm disappointed.
